The Washington University Center for Spinal Tumors, headed by Jacob Buchowski, MD, MS, Professor of Orthopaedic and Neurological surgery, provides the expertise and comprehensive care necessary to effectively treat these complex situations with radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, as appropriate.
The Center is committed to seeing each patient expeditiously and handling all emergent cases immediately. Copies of all notes are communicated to the referring physician, who remains a member of the team delivering the patient’s care. Periodic follow-up is provided by the Center throughout the patient’s lifetime.
With offices at the Center for Advanced Medicine in the Central West End and the Chesterfield Outpatient Orthopedic Center, the new Center for Spinal Tumors has direct access to the expertise of the Siteman Cancer Center and is backed by the full experience and medical technology of Washington University Medical Center.
