Spine Tumors

spinal tumors

Treatment for a spinal tumor aims to remove or shrink the tumor and prevent it from damaging the spinal cord. The spinal surgeons and our orthopaedic oncologists at MedStar Health will work with you and your family to determine the most effective treatment options for you. In many cases, we recommend surgery to remove the as much of the spine tumor as possible. Our orthopaedic surgeons have training and expertise in the most advanced microscopic and minimally invasive spinal surgeries. In other cases, we may recommend non-surgical treatment options, including:

  • Monitoring spine tumor growth
  • Medication, such as corticosteroids, to ease any swelling and inflammation
  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy
