AbstractThe role of surgery for metastatic spine disease is palliative with the goals of achieving excellent neurologic and functional status, spinal stability, pain relief, and local tumor control. Although patients with metastatic spine tumors often have numerous medical and oncologic issues, careful perioperative planning and surgical techniques can help limit complications and help improve patient outcomes significantly.
