Swedish Neuroscience Institute

Your brain and nervous system are essential to your overall health and well-being. That’s why the physicians and researchers at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our patients who are living with serious neurological disorders such as a brain tumor or MS.

To better understand the complexities of the brain and to better care for our patients, we’re leading research efforts into how to detect and treat patients with brain tumors and brain cancers. In addition to providing transformational care, we’re committed to supporting our patients’ physiological and emotional needs that come with a life-altering diagnosis such as MS or a brain tumor.

You are a critical piece in helping our patients get the care they deserve when they need it most. Your generosity ensures they can live their best life.

Addressing the unique needs of patients living with multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often debilitating disease of the central nervous system that not only disrupts the flow of information between the body and brain, but can also disrupt nearly every aspect of a person’s life.

Because MS is more prevalent in our community than anywhere else in the world, we created one of the most comprehensive centers in the country to improve how patients live with MS from diagnosis to treatment.

Gifts to the Swedish MS Center provide specialized services to address each patient’s unique needs— from care and education, to yoga and music therapy. Your generosity is essential to helping people with MS lead healthier, more enriched lives.  

Comprehensive, patient-centered care for brain cancer patients

The average survival for a malignant brain tumor patient is less than 35 percent. So our physicians are in a race to improve the prognosis. At The Ben & Catherine Ivy Center for Brain Tumor Treatment at SNI, we’re working tirelessly to give hope to our patients and their loved ones by treating the most complex and difficult brain and spinal cord tumors with a focus on research and treatment.

Today, The Ivy Center offers our patients care that brings together cutting-edge surgery and oncology treatment with access to promising new clinical research trials. Our physician researchers are gaining international attention for their unique approach to fighting brain cancer.

Through research and with your support, we are extending the lives of people living with brain tumors.
