Living with chronic pain, numbness, or limited motion is no way to live. These symptoms can be attributed to a variety of causes, but sometimes, the underlying culprit is a spinal tumor. The skilled surgeons at Nebraska Spine Hospital understand the challenges posed by spinal tumors and have developed specialized instruments and techniques to effectively remove these growths, providing much-needed relief to patients.
Understanding Spinal Tumors
Spinal tumors are abnormal growths that develop within the spinal column or surrounding tissues. While these tumors can be either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), both types can exert pressure on nearby nerves and tissues, leading to pain, numbness, weakness, and restricted mobility. Identifying and treating spinal tumors promptly is crucial to prevent further complications and alleviate discomfort.
Innovative Instruments and Techniques
At Nebraska Spine Hospital, our surgeons utilize specially developed instruments and cutting-edge techniques to treat spinal tumors with precision and care. By combining their expertise with state-of-the-art technology, they ensure optimal outcomes for patients facing the challenges of this complex condition.
A Multidisciplinary Approach
The treatment of spinal tumors requires a multidisciplinary approach. Diagnostic imaging plays a crucial role in identifying and evaluating spinal tumors. Our radiology department utilizes advanced imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans to determine the location, size, and characteristics of the tumor. This information guides the surgical team in planning the most effective and least invasive approach for tumor removal.
At Nebraska Spine Hospital, we prioritize patient-centered care by ensuring open communication, compassionate support, and comprehensive follow-up to our patients. We understand that facing a spinal tumor can be overwhelming and we strive to provide a supportive environment where patients feel empowered and well-informed throughout their treatment journey.
