Spine Tumor Surgery

An abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord and/or spinal column is referred to as a spinal tumor. These cells appear to be unaffected by the processes that regulate normal cells as they expand and reproduce uncontrollably. Benign (not cancerous) or malignant spinal tumors are both possible (cancerous). The spine or spinal cord is the site of primary malignancies, but cancer that has migrated to the spine from another site is called metastatic cancer or a secondary tumor.

About Spine Tumor Surgery

Spinal tumors or growths of any kind can lead to pain, neurological problems and sometimes paralysis. A spinal tumor can be life-threatening and cause permanent disability. Spinal cord tumors can cause different signs and symptoms, especially as tumors grow. The tumors may affect your spinal cord or the nerve roots, blood vessels or bones of your spine. It can compress spinal nerves, leading to a loss of movement or sensation below the location of the tumor.

Procedure of Spine Tumor Surgery

Spine tumor surgery is a complex procedure that involves removing a tumor or abnormal growth from the spine. Here are the general steps involved in Cervical  spine tumor surgery:

Anesthesia: The patient is given anesthesia to put them to sleep and prevent them from feeling pain during the procedure.

Incision: The surgeon makes an incision in the skin and muscle tissue over the affected area of the spine.

Exposure: The surgeon carefully moves aside muscle tissue and other structures to expose the spine and the tumor.

Tumor removal: Using specialized instruments, the surgeon carefully removes the tumor from the spine while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.

Spinal reconstruction: Depending on the size and location of the tumor, the surgeon may need to perform spinal reconstruction to stabilize the spine and prevent further damage. This may involve fusing vertebrae together, placing screws or rods to hold the spine in place, or using bone grafts to promote bone growth.

Closure: Once the tumor has been removed and the spine has been reconstructed, the surgeon closes the incision with sutures or staples.

Recovery: The patient is closely monitored in the hospital for a few days to ensure that there is no bleeding or other complications. They may be given medication to manage any pain or discomfort and to prevent infection. After leaving the hospital, the patient will need to undergo physical therapy to help regain strength and mobility in the affected area of the spine.
