Spine Tumour Surgery is performed for the partial or total removal of the Spine Tumor, which consists of removing the portion of the vertebra involved with the tumor.
Spine Fusion may be done to reconstruct and stabilize the spine.
Spinal Tumor surgery involves removing spine tumours and reinforcing the spine through an incision in the middle of your back, followed by En bloc resection.
This surgical technique is used to remove the tumour in a single piece.
The cost of Spinal Tumor Surgery includes:
Preoperative diagnostic tests cost may include an MRI scan, CT scan, Biopsy, X-ray, Myelogram, and Discogram.
Surgery cost (Depends upon the type and size of the tumor and the extent to which the tumor has spread)
Post-Operative cost (there might be a need for Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy before or post-surgery)
Patient's hospital stay
Note - Post-surgery patients will have to stay at the hospital for a week or two and later take rehabilitation outside the hospital for 2 to 9 months.
The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:
Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or Single room)
The stage and type of cancer
Patients may require repeated investigation through PET CT and related tests Post-surgery / Chemotherapy / Radiation Therapy.
Any additional tests may be required, such as ECG or blood tests.
An extended stay at the Hospital (Generally, the stay is for a week)
Cost of Accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident [may take longer duration in case of chemotherapy or radiotherapy sessions]
A day or two before the surgery, an MRI scan, CT scan, X-ray, Myelogram, and Discogram are done to evaluate your conditions. A cardiac evaluation, lung function assessment, and appropriate blood tests are also done. The cost for these tests is a part of the package.
Medications administered at the hospital to prepare you for the surgery and help you recover while you’re there are a part of the package price. Any medicines you need to consume after being discharged will not be included in the package.
The spinal tumor surgery can take up to 10 hours depending on the complexity of your tumor and the enveloping tissues it may have developed into. Post the surgery, you will have to stay at the hospital for a week or two and later take rehabilitation outside the hospital for 2 to 9 months.
A spinal tumor is life-threatening, thus after the surgery is done, you will have to take pain medications and be constantly supported by your friends and family for your health. Unfortunately, even successfully removed tumors may sometimes come back, hence you will have to get physical tests done at regular intervals. Additional tests and medications will not be covered in the package.
Spinal tumor surgery is partially covered by health insurance in terms of pre and post-hospitalization and medications. It’s always helpful to reach out to your insurance provider to understand the exact benefits.
Under the guidance of your doctor, you can go for alternative treatments such as high doses of radiation, acupuncture, aromatherapy, chemotherapy, and lastly targeted drug therapy. All the aforementioned treatments are non-invasive. For a more precise treatment plan, talk with a qualified surgeon about your condition.
