Dr. Ferreira specializes in the multi-modality treatment for tumors of the skull base, brain and spinal cord, including meningiomas; schwannomas; pituitary tumors; craniopharyngiomas; neurofibromatosis; chordomas and chondrosarcomas; Von Hippel-Lindau; hemangioblastomas; sinonasal tumors of the skull base; and cysts. He uses minimally-invasive skull base procedures to treat these conditions. Moreover he conducts research to understand the genetic basis of these tumors and inherited disorders and wants to use the genetic discovery to predict response to therapy (radio-sensitivity or radio-resistance).
