Spinal Tumours

Case Studies

WHEN SHOULD YOU OPERATE ON A PATIENT WITH A SPINAL TUMOUR?

The purpose of vertebral tumour surgery is to excise (remove) the tumour, stabilise the spine and decompress the spinal cord.

The decision as to whether to opt for surgery should be made on a multidisciplinary level, after detailed discussion of the case with other specialists (oncologists, therapeutic radiographers). The Quirónsalud Hospital in Barcelona has one of the best Medical Oncology Departments.
