Brain tumor

Hello,
I had previously posted on this site regarding my own medical issue. Now I have a friend who's family member has a brain tumor and is facing surgery. They do not know yet whether the tumor is cancerous. She would like to have some information on what she needs to plan for. Although the doctor that diagnosed this issue (from an emergency visit) seems competent she wants to get a second opinion before they plan the actual sugery. And in fact would like to know what doctors and hospitals in the NY/NJ area specialize in this type of procedure. It seems the tumor is in a favorable location, but it will still need to be diagnosed. Can anyone provide information within this geographical location? Neurosurgeons, hospitals, support for family?
