Spinal Tumors Treatments

“Think of the dual surgeon approach as having two pilots. By having the combined experience of two neurosurgeons, you dramatically reduce blood loss and operative times, and more important, redefine what is considered ‘inoperable.'”

One of the most feared complications of cancer is when it involves the spine. A complex network of bones, nerves and arteries may be affected and, in severe cases, spinal cord compression may lead to paralysis. For these reasons, treatment options for spinal tumors are not always black and white. It takes a deeply experienced team, accustomed to treating complicated cases, to weigh the best — and most individualized — options available to you.

Our physicians are nationally recognized neurosurgery and neuro-oncology experts who use advanced technologies and therapies, and are on the leading-edge of research and discovery.

Advanced techniques

Spinal tumor treatment options depend on a few factors including:

  • Tumor biology
  • Tumor location
  • Extent of the lesion

Treatment options we offer for spinal tumors include:

  • Surgery, including minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopic surgery, spinal cord monitoring and advanced spine instrumentation
  • A unique and less invasive approach when perfomorming complex procedures such as vertebrectomy, resulting in less blood loss and faster healing
  • Individually customized chemotherapy regimes
  • Highly precise radiation therapy

Your care continues long after treatment is completed, and we are committed to helping you and your loved ones manage your recovery.
