My focus on every patient is not only on managing treatment of the tumor and prolonging life but also in maintaining quality of life with the tools we have available.


Dr. Jennifer Connelly’s expertise includes the diagnosis and treatment of a wide array of brain and spine tumors. More specifically, she is focused on tumors that begin or have spread (metastasized) to the brain or spine. In addition, her clinical interests include evaluating and treating neurologic complications of cancer and cancer therapies (including paraneoplastic syndromes seizures, and neuropathies). Her research interests include molecular pathology as well as development of advanced MRI imaging techniques for diagnosing and treating brain and spinal cord tumors. Her holistic patient-centered care focuses on improving quality of life outcomes for brain and spine tumor patients. A native of the Milwaukee area, Dr. Connelly has received all of her training at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
