Glioma is a cancer of the glial cells, which surround and support neurons (nerve cells) in the brain and spine. When these cancerous cells multiply, they form tumors that can affect movement, sensation, and thought.

At Stanford Health Care, we're leaders in treating all types of glioma tumors, including ones that other health centers consider too challenging to treat. People from around the world come to us for our multispecialty team, advanced treatment options, and compassionate care.
