Neuro-Oncology

(514) 340-8222 x 25200

Medical Director: Jeff Golan, MD
Neurosurgeons: Salvatore Di Maio, MD, Jeff Golan, MD, Gerard Mohr, MD
Clinical Nurse Specialist in Neurosurgery and Nurse Navigator: François Aubé, BSc.N

The Neuro-Oncology Team, which is comprised of neurosurgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, neuro-radiologists and radiation oncologists, work in collaboration with the McGill University Neuro-Oncology Group. The neurosurgeons at the Jewish General Hospital specialize in open and minimally invasive techniques to remove benign and malignant tumours of the brain, skull base, pituitary gland and spine.

Neurosurgery Clinical Programs

The Neuro-Otology program
The neuro-otology team: treats patients with acoustic neuromas, which are benign brain tumours that affect the functioning of the inner ear. Patients are reviewed in a tumour board setting with neurosurgeons, neuro-otologists and radiation oncologists to select and implement the best treatment option for patients with acoustic neuromas, including observation, surgical resection, radiosurgery and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (Neurosurgeon: Salvatore Di Maio, MD; Otologic Surgeon: Jamie Rappaport, MD; Radiation oncologists: Khalil Sultanem, MD, Thierry Muanza, MD)
 
The Skull Base program
The skull base team diagnoses and treats tumours that frequently affect the base of the skull, such as meningiomas, schwannomas, craniopharyngiomas, chordomas, chondrosarcomas, epidermoid tumours, cholesterol granulomas, and other less common neoplasms. Neurosurgeons and head and neck surgeons work in close collaboration and review all patients at a combined tumour board to diagnose, stage and select the optimal treatment for patients with skull base tumours. Surgeons at the Jewish General Hospital are specialized in complex open and minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic approaches to the skull base. (Neurosurgeons: Salvatore Di Maio, MD, Jeff Golan, MD ; Head and Neck Surgeons: Martin Black, MD, Michael Hier, MD, Saul Frenkiel, MD, Alex Mlynarek, MD, Marc Tewfik, MD)
 
The Pituitary program
The pituitary team works with the Division of Endocrinology to diagnose and treat patients with pituitary adenomas and other lesions affecting the pituitary gland. Neurosurgeons at the Jewish General Hospital are specialized in endoscopic endonasal techniques to remove pituitary tumors. (Neurosurgeon: Salvatore Di Maio, MD)
 
The Spine program
The spine team consists of neurosurgeons who work in close collaboration with orthopedic surgeons on cases of metastatic and primary tumours of the spine. The surgeons at the Jewish General Hospital are specialized in both minimally invasive and complex open procedures for spinal disorders (Neurosurgeon: Jeff Golan, MD; Orthopedic Surgeon: Peter Jarzem, MD)
