Headshot of James J. Evans, MD

My philosophy is maximal benefit from the least invasive treatment. I manage tumors of the brain and cranial base in a comprehensive manner. I have developed my practice to involve all means of treatment including conservative measures, minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery, and non-invasive stereotactic radiation techniques. I also collaborate very closely with other specialists in our team. Each patient is approached as an individual and the treatment is carefully tailored to their specific needs. Through these efforts, the best possible outcomes can be achieved.
