Cleveland Clinic announced in a news release
it offers stereotactic spine radiosurgery to treat metastases located on the spine.
The radiosurgery is a non-invasive outpatient procedure, which can be used as a stand-alone treatment for spinal metastases or as a supplement to other medical or surgical treatments. Stereotactic spine radiosurgery delivers radiation directly into the spine tumor, which minimizes radiation exposure to nearby organs and tissues.
The Cleveland Clinic established a spine tumor program in 2006.
