There are now over 120 different types of brain tumours identified and, as the discovery and understanding of brain tumours has evolved over the last decade, so have the ways in which we approach them. Here, at UHN, we manage clinics by brain tumour type: skull-based surgery, brain metastases, general neuro-oncology, Gamma Knife and neurofibromatosis. Managing clinics this way allows us to meet the medical and the specific psychosocial needs of each of our patients, decrease the amount of time patients spend going from clinic to clinic for various aspects of their treatment and allows patients to consult with their entire medical team at once. The Krembil program is one of few institutions to take this approach in the management of brain tumours.
