Al's Comment:

 GammaTile  is an FDA approved treatment for brain tumors that is implanted at the time of surgery (both newly diagnosed or recurrent) and can double the time before the tumor grows, which buys time for other treatments to work.

It is not available everywhere just yet, visit their website to see which centers are using it now and ask your neurosurgeon about it.

This free webinar will go into detail about it.
