Brain Conditions & Tumors

We are the neurosurgical practice that truly cares for the whole of the patient.

Although there will always be continuous learning, we know more today about tumors of the Central Nervous System (CNS) than ever before. There have been considerable advances in diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. Dr. Dagam Neurosurgery stands out by upholding our culture of humane care and taking on challenges that others can’t through advanced technology and treatment.

Early detection of a brain tumor is critically important to survival and maintaining function. If you or a family member experiences any of these symptoms, please call or make an appointment with Dr. Dagam. Brain tumor symptoms include:

  • Headaches, nausea and vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Motor problems
  • Muscle weakness or spasticity
  • Numbness, decreased sensitivity to temperature and loss of sensation
  • Balance problems
  • Behavioral and cognitive symptoms
  • Vision or hearing problems
  • Memory and personality changes
  • Impaired bladder or bowel control

Our patients tell our story of expertise, compassion and care. Dr. Dagam is the leading neurosurgery expertin Southeast Wisconsin on brain tumors and other cranial and cerebrovascular conditions, such as: 

  • Epilepsy
  • Head trauma
  • Trigeminal neuralgia (facial pain caused by tumor on the brain stem)
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Stroke
  • Aneurysm
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage
  • Intractable pain (from cancer, trauma or other nerve injury)

What Next?

“Dr. Dagam is the rare Doctor who has not only superior skills, but also a caring, patient-focused approach to treatment. I have had two surgeries with Dr. Dagam, both with excellent outcomes. I would recommend him to all who seek quality care.”


We listen and we empathize.
