Swedish in Seattle Unveils State-of-the-Art Brain Tumor Center

October 17, 2008 - Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) said as part of Swedish Medical Center’s newly renovated Cherry Hill Campus, the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment (CABTT) has officially opened its doors to patients diagnosed with both benign and malignant brain tumors.

CABTT’s facility is reportedly 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.

Now fully operational, the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment gives brain-tumor patients and their families access to a 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 design places its research facility directly adjacent to the patient clinic, reportedly providing instant access to promising new therapies discovered through gene-sequencing technologies.
