Abstract

Patients with brain tumors are some of the most complex patients in the medical system, necessitating treatment teams of multiple subspecialists for optimal care. This article examines the roles of these subspecialists, with the goal of summarizing standard-of-care practices, recent therapeutic advances, and ongoing clinical investigations within each subspecialty.
