Spine Tumors Surgery

The manifestation of pain in the spine is an alarming signal. Most pathologies in the early stages respond to conservative treatment. But bone problems can cause irreversible changes that occur at any age, especially in the elderly. Pain in the spine is complicated by the appearance of paresis, paralysis and malfunction of the pelvic organs. Similar problems can lead to disability.

The Tel Aviv Medical Clinic has a spinal neurosurgery unit. Our medical staff has accumulated vast experience in invasive and minimally invasive methods of treating spinal diseases. Specialists have undergone special training in complex operations and use the latest generation of implants and substances that stimulate bone fusion. Our unit is equipped with modern equipment that helps to avoid damage to the spinal cord. Our doctors practice an integrated approach to the treatment of bone tissue diseases.
