Oligodendroglioma is a rare form of brain tumor that emerges from the supportive tissue (or glial cells). Seizures are common in people with this type of tumor. Other symptoms include headache, nausea and vomiting, difficulty with balance, dizziness and changes in mental state.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by oligodendrogliomas. We specialize in minimally invasive surgeries that remove tumors or reduce their size using advanced laser technology. By combining this procedure with intraoperative MRI, our surgeons can pinpoint the precise location of a tumor and monitor its removal with “real time” imaging during surgery. This enables them to remove more of the tumor and preserve healthy, surrounding tissue. Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgeries also recover more quickly and experience less scarring and pain.
