For Healthcare Professionals: Spine Tumors

More than 1,500 people annually come to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Spine Tumor Center for diagnosis and treatment. Our international leaders in neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, radiation oncology, and interventional neuroradiology confer with experts in physiatry, physical and occupational therapy, and nursing to devise a treatment plan personalized to each individual.

Recent advances in technology and new therapeutic techniques, including high-powered stereotactic radiosurgery, have dramatically improved the treatment options and effectiveness of spine tumor management — as well as our capacity to perform less invasive procedures, relieve pain, and preserve quality of life.
