Spine Cancer

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way spine cancers are prevented, detected and treated.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there is no routine spine cancer.

Spine cancer is a complex disease. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective spine cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of spine cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists to neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in spine cancer (and only spine cancer) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual spine cancer patient.

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.
