Our multidisciplinary spinal tumor team consists of top experts in neurosurgery, oncology, radiation oncology, neurology, neurophysiology and pain medicine who implement the latest medical and surgical approaches to treat all types of spinal tumors.

Penn Spine Center specialists collaborate at neuro-oncology tumor board meetings where they review and discuss spinal tumor cases. Over 20 physicians come together to share information from clinic visits and review diagnostic tests. The team then discusses their findings to create personalized treatment plans and make recommendations about how to best maximize patient outcomes.
