Department(s) or Division(s)
This is a prospective study designed to analyze the impact that minimally invasive spine tumor decompression has upon quality of life neurologic morbidity pain and mortality. We intend to compare our findings to historical controls to determine whether the minimally invasive approach offers better outcomes. The treatment procedure will be performed at Mount Sinai Medical Center as part of standard-of-care treatment. Records used for the study will only include procedures of minimally invasive surgery for spinal tumors performed in the Neurosurgery department at Mount Sinai.
