Spinal tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. Tumors in the spine can be benign or malignant. Malignant tumors in the spine may be Primary (begin in the spine) or Secondary (metastatic – move to the spine from other locations). The most common cancers that move to the spine are breast, lung, renal and prostate. Most often cancer that moves to the spine is not fatal, although it can cause pain and compress nerves. Nerves that are compressed can cause weakness or paralysis of the arms or legs. Best Treatment of spine tumors in India is focused on maintaining quality of life. They generally require surgery for excision of the tumour by a neurosurgeon. The excised spinal tumour is then sent for biopsy to determine the further line of treatment in the form of Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy.
Spinal tumour surgery at Ivy Hospital Mohali in Punjabis best performed by our neurosurgeon Dr Jaspreet Singh Randhawa using minimally invasive or endoscopic technique which requires lesser number of days in hospital and faster recovery. Some people will spend time in an intensive care unit after being operated upon for the spinal tumour. These are mostly the patients who need support for breathing from a ventilator, or special intravenous (IV) medications for blood pressure. Sometimes an ICU is needed just for overnight observation. It is very common to need a cervical collar or other brace after spinal tumour surgery. The brace keeps you from putting stress on the healing muscles and bones. It will allow you to start getting out of bed about a day after spinal tumour surgery. Post Surgery you would be required to do physiotherapy to achieve complete range of motion.
