The Spine Tumor Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering provides state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services for more than 1,500 people with primary or metastatic spine tumors each year. Our newly updated guide to spine tumor care describes our innovative program.

We take a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment, and our team of experts collaborates closely from a patient’s first visit on all aspects of care. This ensures that everyone receives personalized treatment quickly — an important factor for so many people with spine tumors.

New technologies and therapeutic techniques, including several developed by Memorial Sloan Kettering physicians, have dramatically improved the safety and effectiveness of spine tumor treatment. Learn more about how our experts use new surgical approaches that have reduced the time required in the operating room, more-effective radiation therapy techniques, minimally invasive procedures for stabilizing the spine, and Botox injections and rehabilitation therapy that can help manage pain and increase mobility after treatment.
