Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Spinal Tumors

The use of Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Spinal Tumors takes a non-surgical approach when treatment is considered through this process. The patient’s head is properly adjusted to a head frame that is screwed into the skull of the patient. Multiple radiation beams can be administered with the precise control of the patient’s body with the method of using a linear accelerator (LINAC). Treatment along the spinal cord in location of the tumors is properly dosed in radiation therapy procedures due to surrounding area of healthy tissue among the spine.
