Am I a candidate for spine tumors surgery?
Not all cases of spine tumors are viable for surgery, an evaluation is necessary to determine the type of tumor, its stage, and location. We recommend that you consult with one of our neurosurgeons for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate.
How do I prepare for spine tumors surgery?
You will have some medical tests done days before your surgery. Neurosurgeons recommend you to stop eating at least 12 hours before surgery and will discuss with you if you need to take medications to reduce swelling and pressure on the spine.
What will recovery be like?
After surgery, you will be referred to a physical therapist to regain your strength and cognitive ability.
