Brain Tumors Atlanta GA

There are more than 100 different types of brain tumors, and each one requires highly specialized treatment. At the forefront of the field is Dr. Jim Robinson, M.D., a board-certified surgeon treating patients from Atlanta, GA, and the surrounding region. Dr. Robinson treats patients with a comprehensive range of conditions, from primary tumors and metastatic cancers to conditions involving the pituitary gland, skull base, and spine.

Primary brain tumors develop in the brain tissues known as the “white matter” or “gray matter.” Conversely, other brain tumors initially develop in distant organs, such as the kidney or lungs, but later spread (metastasize) to the brain. When treating any brain tumor, it’s crucial to consider which areas of the brain, nerve, and blood vessel anatomy are involved, what type of cells comprise the tumor, and what type of symptoms the patient is experiencing, in order to provide the most individualized treatment possible.

Dr. Robinson provides surgical treatment for a variety of brain tumors, including:

  • Astrocytomas
  • Craniopharyngiomas
  • Ependymomas
  • Glioblastomas
  • Gliomas
  • Medulloblastomas
  • Meningiomas
  • Metastatic tumors
  • Oligodendrogliomas
  • Pineal Tumors
  • Pituitary Tumors
  • Neurofibromas
  • Schwannomas

When it comes to surgery, the most important equipment is the surgeon’s hands – and Dr. Robinson’s hands have completed hundreds upon hundreds of brain tumor surgeries, including many procedures involving the highest risk areas of the brain, with exceptional results. He also performs microvascular decompression surgeries for trigeminal neuralgia, Chiari decompression surgeries, and has experience with over 600 cases of Gamma Knife radiosurgery, which is a non-invasive outpatient procedure for some brain tumors and other brain disorders. Blending an unparalleled level of experience and precision with compassion and understanding, Dr. Robinson has helped countless individuals find relief from neurological conditions and helped them achieve higher-quality lives.
