Meningioma Surgery for Residents of Atlanta, GA, and the Surrounding Areas

Meningioma Surgery Atlanta GA

Dr. Jim Robinson, M.D., is one of the leading meningioma surgery experts in Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeastern U.S. While meningiomas are typically slow-growing and do not always need to be removed, patients who do require meningioma surgery can turn to Dr. Robinson for world-class care. This includes patients with meningiomas at the base of the skull involving delicate nerves, leaving the brain stem to facilitate vital functions like vision, hearing, facial muscle control, swallowing, and speaking, as well as blood vessels supplying the brain. He has extensive experience with these most difficult of brain surgery procedures. His patience and delicate surgical technique afford his patients some of the best outcome statistics in the U.S.

Dr. Robinson is board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery, and is also a Fellow of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. For more than 20 years, his professional focus has been treating brain and skull base tumors and other brain conditions with microscopic and endoscopic surgery. His conditions treated include both benign and malignant brain tumors, including meningioma.

At his Atlanta neurosurgery practice, Dr. Robinson performs minimally invasive meningioma surgery (resections). He also offers Gamma Knife® radiosurgery as a non-invasive surgical alternative. Drawing on his decades of clinical expertise, Dr. Robinson creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient, making personalized recommendations based on:

  • The size and location of the meningioma
  • The patient’s age, lifestyle, and general health
  • Whether this is the first time the patient has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, or if the tumor has come back after a previous attempt at treatment

Because meningioma surgery is often just one component of a patient’s treatment plan, Dr. Robinson is committed to working with each patient’s other medical professionals to coordinate streamlined, multispecialty treatment. Dr. Robinson can help determine when a patient’s meningioma surgery should be scheduled, which other treatments should be provided, and whether those other treatments should come before or after surgery. The end result: comprehensive, individualized care that helps each patient achieve his or her best possible outcome.

Another key factor that sets Dr. Robinson apart from other meningioma surgery providers is the extensive emotional support that he provides to each one of his patients. In recognition of his extensive medical experience and outstanding bedside manner, the Consumers’ Research Council of America named Dr. Robinson one of America’s Top Surgeons.
