Intracranial tumors reflect a broad range of benign and malignant processes that are often managed by neurosurgeons and medical oncologists. Patients presenting with new brain tumors will undergo biopsies or resection for tissue diagnosis and resolution of neurological symptoms. These patients have significant perioperative risk factors that must be addressed to ensure the best possible outcomes. Hospitalists play a pivotal role in identifying these risk factors and offering management strategies prior to the development of an operative plan. This chapter provides insight into the range of preoperative considerations and postoperative complications that a hospitalist may face when managing brain tumor patients.
