Ganglioglioma is a slow-growing, benign brain tumor that emerges from the supportive tissue in the brain. It commonly triggers seizures. Once surgically removed, the tumor rarely returns, but complete removal can be difficult if the mass is located near the language center of the brain.

Best in Care

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by ganglioglioma. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that use laser technology to remove tumors or reduce their size. These advanced techniques often minimize damage to surrounding tissue and result in less scarring and pain. Minimally invasive techniques can help patients who are not good candidates for traditional surgery because their tumors are growing in highly sensitive areas.
