The spine is the most common place in the body that tumors are found. These tumors originate from the spine itself or frequently may be tumors that have spread from other parts of the body (metastatic tumors).
Treatment of Spine Tumors involves the coordinated care from several types of physicians including Oncologists and Spinal Surgeons. Treatment options include radiation, chemotherapy, medications, physical therapy, and surgery. Treatment decisions are based on the type of tumor present and its location.
