Available Spinal Tumour Surgery in India options
The following are the available options for Spinal Tumour Surgery in India at Spine Surgery India, the leading medical tourism company; however, these surgeries depend on the type of spinal tumour and its location. These are:
a) Decompression: Decompression is a procedure in which your spine surgeon will remove the entire tumor or part of it which relieves the pressure to the spinal cord and nerve roots, thereby helping to reduce pain and other symptoms.
b) Embolization: This is an interventional technique that is usually performed by a highly-skilled radiologist with which he/she is able to slow or cuts off the tumor’s blood supply. Embolization causes the tumor to shrink.
c) Radiosurgery: This is a non-surgical procedure to treat the spinal tumor as it delivers precisely targeted radiation. Radiosurgery is a treatment that is administered during one or more sessions of high-dose radiation. According to the study, the tumor will not be immediately removed by performing this treatment as with surgery. Rather, the tumor disappears with time.
d) Spinal Stabilization: It has been found that spinal tumors can cause your spine and your spine to become unstable, especially after a procedure like decompression where your surgeon removes bony parts or tissues, such as an intervertebral disc. An unstable spine can increase the risk for serious neurologic injuries, such as bladder dysfunction, paralysis or bowel.
The spine surgeons at Spine Surgery India may include spinal stabilization with another surgical procedure to treat your spinal tumor. To stabilize your spine the spine surgeon usually involves spinal instrumentation and bone graft. Instrumentation may include implantation of screws, plates, and rods, etc. which immediately stabilize your spine. Your surgeon will take bone graft either from your body part or they use the donor bone graft to stimulate new bone growth and they will join the spinal segment together to heal fast. Fusion occurs when new bone growth joins vertebrae together.
e) Targeted therapies: These are the new procedures that are used to fight with some types of spinal tumors. Targeted therapies are used to attack cancer cells through small molecules to block pathways that cells use to survive.
