Dr. Matthew Garrett is a neurosurgeon specializing in primary brain tumors and metastatic brain tumors. He is an expert on the surgical removal of these tumors as well as radiation therapy. While removing these tumors and treating with radiation can extend survival, the majority of brain tumors have no definitive cure. For this reason, Dr. Garrett is heavily invested in bringing new clinical trials and investigational therapies that are not available anywhere else.
