Poster # 2158 Adaptive Hybrid Surgery: Feasibility Of Planned Subtotal Resection Of Benign Skull Base Tumors Followed By Radiosurgery To Minimize Morbidity Without Compromising Tumor Control

Presenter: Igor Barani, MD

About the Presenter:
Igor J. Barani, MD is an Assistant Professor In-Residence and a Vice-Chair for Clinical Research in the UCSF Department of Radiation Oncology. Dr. Barani has a clinical interest in the treatment of central nervous system malignancies. He specializes in the use of radiosurgical treatment techniques, such as the Gamma Knife and Cyberknife, and modern radiotherapy techniques, such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and proton radiotherapy to treat a variety of malignant and benign conditions. Dr. Barani is specifically interested in the development and implementation of innovative, multi-modality translational protocols to treat adult and pediatric patients with brain tumors, particularly with respect to improving tumor control outcomes and preservation of neurologic/neurocognitive function. His basic science interests revolve around neural stem cells and their potential roles in gliomagenesis as well as post-treatment neurocognitive decline. Dr. Barani hopes to use the understanding of neural stem cell biology and modern treatment techniques to create meaningful translational studies that will result in more, healthier survivors of central nervous system tumors.
