New Jersey-based JD Lipani Radiosurgery Institute Offers Non-Invasive Treatment for Spinal Tumors


Dr. John D. Lipani educates patients on treatments for metastatic spinal tumors

Hamilton (I-Newswire) January 30, 2014 - Spinal tumors are abnormal masses of tissue that are located within or surrounding the spinal cord or spinal column. Metastatic spinal tumors usually form as a result of cancer that has spread to the spinal area.

Dr. John D. Lipani, founder of the JD Lipani Radiosurgery Institute, says that early symptoms of metastatic spinal tumors include back pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, and loss of bladder control. Metastatic tumors are often called "secondary" tumors, since they result from cancer and spread from one area to the spine.

Dr. Lipani says that the severity of pain a patient experiences will depend on the location of the tumor. Although some patients will not experience significant symptoms of metastatic spinal disease, if the condition is left untreated, serious health and mobility issues can result if the condition is not properly treated.

According to Dr. Lipani, appropriate treatment for metastatic spinal tumors depends on the location of the tumor within the spinal column. Tumors can occur within the spinal column (intramedullary tumor), outside the spinal cord and within the vertebral column (extradural tumor), or outside the spinal cord (intradural-extramedullary tumor). Dr. Lipani evaluates each individual case, and recommends appropriate treatment based on the patient's particular needs.

While some spinal tumors may require open surgery, nonsurgical treatments can often be effective for patients. Dr. Lipani says some of the most common treatments for these tumors include chemotherapy, over-the-counter or prescription medication, radiation therapy, and radiosurgery.

Dr. Lipani says that radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment option that uses highly-focused beams of radiation to destroy stubborn tumors, without damaging any surrounding areas of tissue. He adds that this type of treatment is becoming extremely popular among patients, since it requires no lengthy recovery time or hospital stay, and is a safe alternative to traditional surgery.

Dr. Lipani practices at the JD Lipani Radiosurgery Institute, which focuses on non-invasive radiosurgery to treat brain and spinal tumors. Dr. Lipani and his staff are dedicated to preserving quality of life by helping patients maintain healthy brain and spine function.
