Spinal tumor treatment requires input and expertise from a range of specialties — oncology, orthopedic spine surgery, neurosurgery and others. The specialist surgeons at Norton Leatherman Spine, along with neurosurgeons from Norton Neuroscience Institute, work closely with Norton Cancer Institute physicians to treat spinal tumors.
