Spine Tumor Surgery

Spine tumor surgery involves the removal or treatment of tumors affecting the spinal cord or the surrounding structures of the spine. The location of these tumors vary and can arise from the bone of the spine or the spinal cord/nerve roots itself. It is important to distinguish where the tumor is. This surgical procedure aims to address abnormal growths, which can be either benign or malignant, and alleviate pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. The surgery may include the removal of the tumor, stabilization of the spine, or a combination of both, depending on the nature and location of the tumor. Surgical techniques may range from traditional open approaches to more minimally invasive methods, depending on the complexity and accessibility of the tumor. The goal of spine tumor surgery is to enhance neurological function, relieve symptoms, and, in cases of malignancy, contribute to the overall treatment plan for cancer. Postoperative recovery and rehabilitation are crucial components of the comprehensive care for patients undergoing spine tumor surgery.
