Karen, 54 – Spine Tumor
- Posted on: Oct 4 2016
I was horrified to learn I had a tumor on my spinal cord. Doctors told me that without surgery I would be paralyzed. I was told I needed a risky operation that would involve cutting open my chest and collapsing my lung. With my other medical problems this was a risk I did not want to take. Dr. Lipani offered me a non-invasive alternative to surgery with Cyberknife. I felt I was in good hands since Dr. Lipani has a lot of experience with both radiosurgery and open surgery. He was able to explain the risks and benefits of each procedure which help me with my decision. After three painless treatments I was no longer concerned about my spinal tumor. It’s been over three years now and I am still walking!
