The Washington University Spinal Tumor Center, headed by Jacob Buchowski, MD, MS, Professor of Orthopaedic and Neurological Surgery, provides comprehensive, specialized care to patients with tumors of the spine. The center provides the expertise and comprehensive care necessary to effectively treat these complex situations with radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, as appropriate.
