< Back to Brain Tumors


Subependymoma is a slow-growing, benign brain tumor located near the spinal cord and the ventricles, the fluid-filled areas of the brain. The tumors can obstruct spinal-fluid flow or put pressure on surrounding areas, triggering headaches, nausea, vision, balance problems and personality changes.

Best in Care

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the-art facility for adults and children affected by subependymoma. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify and remove the tumors with immense accuracy. These advanced techniques pinpoint affected tissue with millimeter precision, enabling our surgeons to remove the tumor or reduce its size. Minimally invasive endoscopic approaches allow removal through the nasal cavity. Recovery is quicker, because no incision is made.
