Spinal Tumors

The Och Spine Hospital is internationally recognized as a leading facility for the treatment of spinal tumors. As part of New York’s No. 1 hospital, our patients have access to specialized care provided by physicians from a leading academic medical center. The Och Spine Hospital was created as a single facility in New York, staffed with spine tumor experts at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, explicitly designed to treat common and complex spine conditions.

Types of Spine Tumors We Treat

Our spinal tumor experts have extensive experience treating vertebral tumors — tumors that affect the bones of the spine — and spinal cord tumors — tumors that begin within the spinal cord itself. Some tumors we treat, include:

  • Astrocytomas
  • Chondrosarcoma
  • Chordoma
  • Ependymoma
  • Ewing’s sarcoma
  • Giant cell tumor
  • Hemangioblastoma
  • Lipoma
  • Meningiomas
  • Metastatic tumors
  • Neurofibromas
  • Osteoblastoma
  • Osteogenic sarcoma
  • Osteoid osteoma
  • Schwannomas
  • Solitary bone plasmacytoma
  • Spinal hemangioma

Our Approach to Spinal Tumors

Our neurosurgical spine team cares for patients with primary and metastatic spinal tumors. This requires a multidisciplinary approach combining surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy, as indicated. Our experienced surgeons are leaders in the care and treatment of these spine tumors and may use spinal stabilization and, in some cases, minimally invasive spine surgery to treat spinal tumors, preserving spinal nerve function and improving patients’ quality of life.
