Yes and no: If it is in an area that can be resected, the neurosurgeon tries to remove as much as safely possible. However, this tumor unlike others usually is difficult to completely resect. So the goal is to remove as much as possible. Radiation and chemotherapy are standard after surgery. The goal of treatment is to delay the time of recurrence. Hope this helps.
