Swedish in Seattle Unveils State-of-the-Art Brain Tumor Center Combining Advanced Treatment With Innovation in Research
Date:10/16/2008

- New facility provides patients access to advanced gene-sequencing technologies and gives new hope for those battling brain cancer

SEATTLE, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) today announced that as part of Swedish Medical Center's newly renovated Cherry Hill Campus, the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment (CABTT) has now officially opened its doors to patients diagnosed with both benign and malignant brain tumors. In a move that further establishes Swedish Medical Center as a leader in the field of neuroscience, CABTT's unique facility is the first community-based center in Washington state that enables scientists, researchers, doctors and patients to work collaboratively toward new treatment options for those diagnosed with all stages of brain tumors, including brain cancer.

"The Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment is poised to make major breakthroughs in the treatment of both benign and malignant brain tumors," said Marc Mayberg, M.D., co-executive director of Swedish Neuroscience Institute. "These advancements and the skilled work of the center's doctors, scientists and staff, bring Swedish to the forefront of brain-tumor research and treatment."

Now fully operational, the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment gives brain-tumor patients and their families access to a unique multidisciplinary team of skilled neurosurgeons, oncologists, radiologists and a specialized nursing staff to deliver coordinated care and innovative treatments for both benign and malignant brain tumors. CABTT's unique design places its world-class research facility directly adjacent to the patient clinic, providing instant access to promising new therapies discovered through gene-sequencing technologies.

"For patients managing a brain-cancer diagnosis, access to multiple doctors in one location cuts down on repeat appointments and provides more efficient care," said David Newell, M.D., co-executive dire
