What are
Tumors of the Spine?

Tumors of the spine are abnormal growths that can develop within the spinal column. These tumors can originate from the spinal cord, nerve roots, bones, or surrounding tissues. Depending on their location and characteristics, they can cause various symptoms and affect spinal function.

The presence of spinal tumors can significantly impact an individual's daily life. Chronic pain associated with the tumor can make simple activities such as walking or sitting challenging. Sensory disturbances can interfere with fine motor skills like writing or performing delicate tasks.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive
