Fundación Valle del Lili has created the Tumor Clinic, a team of specialists who seek to develop a model of comprehensive care including diagnosis, treatment and timely monitoring of patients with central nervous system tumors. This clinical service was established with the purpose of providing a timely comprehensive management and is addressed to patients with findings by imaging and/or signs and symptoms in their clinical history suggestive of a primary tumor, and patients with histopathological diagnosis of high-grade glioma.
A Tumor Clinic allows for the involvement of all the specialties and offers the patient a better treatment, multidisciplinary management and multiple treatment options, in such a way that this integrated approach renders benefits to the patients and provides personalized treatment.
The three treatment lines for primary tumors of the central nervous system are: total (if possible) surgical resection of the tumor, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Specific management depends on location, histopathology and characteristics of the tumor.
-Patients will always be monitored from diagnosis, before and during surgery and during post-surgical hospitalization, with assessment by oncology and radiotherapy specialists, ensuring that the process is within the timeframes set by the guidelines, requiring 3 to 6 weeks, thus optimizing the healing process.
-New treatment approaches are related to the genetic variations of a tumor, thus throwing a glimmer of hope on the understanding and prognosis of this complex group of lesions.
