More Information

Dr. Scott G. Turner is a board-certified UCI Health neuro-oncologist with more than a decade of experience diagnosing and treating patients with tumors of the brain and spine.

His clinical interests include glial proliferation, migration and invasion, and associated clinical therapeutics for primary brain and spine tumors. He creates comprehensive, individually tailored care plans for each patient that include physical and occupational therapy, nutritional planning, psychiatric and neuropsychological evaluation, as well as palliative care.

Turner received his medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, followed by a neurology residency at Stony Brook University's Renaissance School of Medicine in Stony Brook, N.Y. He subsequently completed a neuro-oncology fellowship at Duke University in Durham, N.C.

Before coming to UCI Health and the UCI School of Medicine, Turner practiced neuro-oncology for more than 10 years, serving as director of neuro-oncology at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., and at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. His focus has been on developing multidisciplinary treatment strategies that integrate clinical trials with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, intrathecal chemotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery.

He is an active researcher and he has participated as principal investigator and co-investigator on many clinical trials. His research has been published many peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.
