Fellowship-Trained Neurosurgeon Leads Collaborative Neuro-Oncology Care

Premier Health’s nationally recognized neuro-oncology program is led by Ania Pollack, MD, FACS, FAANS, a certified physician with MD Anderson Cancer Center Network®. The Miami Valley Hospital Foundation honored her as a medical professional Champion of Hope in 2020/2021 for her innovations in the neuro-oncology program, and for providing state-of-the-art and compassionate care for her patients at the bedside and in the operating room.

Dr. Pollack is a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon specializing in skull-base neurosurgery and neuro-oncology. She provides personalized, comprehensive surgical and non-surgical treatment in collaboration with medical oncology and radiation oncology for brain and spine tumors, and conditions like skull base and pituitary tumors.

During a weekly neuro-oncology multidisciplinary clinic at Miami Valley Hospital South’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, patients can see the physicians they need to see on the same day, without traveling from place to place. This greatly benefits patients who may have cognitive or physical impairments from their cancer. Each patient’s case is discussed at a weekly tumor board for team input on personalized care plans.

The neuro-oncology program will continue to enhance access for patients in the Ohio region.
