Our world-class program treats patients from all over the United States as well as from many foreign countries. This program is directed by Dr. Joung H. Lee, a leading international authority in the management of meningiomas. During his 21-year tenure at the world famous Cleveland Clinic, serving as Professor & founding Director of Skull Base Surgery Center, he had established one of the largest meningioma centers in the world, evaluating more than 200 new meningioma patients annually and having accumulated one of the largest experiences in the world in meningioma surgery, having surpassed over 1200 cases.
He has pioneered many innovative surgical techniques used in meningioma surgery which are currently used by many neurosurgeons throughout the world. He has lectured extensively in the US and internationally, and authored more than 100 publications and edited two books, including a comprehensive textbook, Meningiomas (Springer-Verlag, 2008, 616 pages). His clinical research in meningiomas has also been recognized with Synthes Awards (American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meetings, 2007 & 2009, awarded to his fellows, Dr. B. Sade in 2007 and Dr. Jaesung Park in 2009) and Integra Foundation Award (AANS Annual Meeting 2006, awarded to his fellow, Dr. B. Sade). He is annually cited as one of the “Best Doctors in America.”
For meningioma patients, it is critically important to know that not all patients require surgery at the time of diagnosis. A careful analysis of the individual patient’s age, medical condition, meningioma location, tumor size or symptoms must be conducted by an expert surgeon experienced in meningioma management to come up with an individualized treatment plan tailored for each patient.
It is our mission to deliver world-class care to each and every patient with respect and compassion. We strive to treat each patient as if he or she is our own family member.
