At Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center our orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons evaluate and treat patients with primary and metastatic spinal tumors, including intradural tumors. Our multidisciplinary team includes neurosurgeons, orthopaedic spine surgeons, radiologists, and oncologists. Our highly skilled team treats a wide range of spinal tumors.
Some of the procedures and treatments for a spinal tumor may include:
- Radiation therapy
- Radiosurgery - Radiosurgery allows the physician to deliver a high dose of precisely targeted radiation by using computers to focus radiation beams on tumors with pinpoint accuracy and from multiple angles.
- Surgery - Surgery can range from a minimally invasive procedure such as vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty to complex reconstruction depending on the severity of cancer involvement. Our neurosurgeons and orthopaedic spine surgeons will discuss the best treatment option for your spinal tumor.
- Tumor Resection
