Lumbar Tumor Removal Surgery India
(Package: $1700, 1 Days Stay)

Tumor is the mass formed by rapid growing cells, which have no physiological function and the mass gathered becomes abnormal. Though it does not perform any physiological function in the human body, the derivation of its nutrition is continued from the body. Tumors can be developed anywhere in the body and the tumors that are developed in the spine or spinal cord are called spinal tumors.

Spinal cord is well covered or encased by a protective tissue layer, which is called as meninges. This spinal cord is well protected and covered within the protective vertebral column.

Types of Tumors

The tumors developed in the spine can be either primary or secondary. Primary tumors are formed from the cells that are originated from the tissues of the spine. Secondary tumors are originated from the other parts of the body, which are traversed or spread through the blood stream.

Other classification of tumors is also done. According to this classification, the spinal tumors are,

  • Intradural-extramedullary tumors, found and seen within the meninges layers, which are well covering the cord of the spine.
  • Intrameduallary spine tumor, which is found in the substance itself of the spinal cord
  • Extradural tumors, which are found in between the vertebral body and meninges

Most of the spinal tumors occurring in the spine are the extradural spinal tumors.

Other classification of the tumors include according to the cancerous cells. These tumors are usually classified to be benign and malignant tumors. Usually, the tumors that are originated and grown in one place or part of the body is called benign tumor. So, benign spinal tumors are the tumors, originated and grown at the same place in the spine. The other kind of tumor is malignant tumor. These tumors are usually originated in one place and the same tumor cells are spread to the surrounding parts of the body, flowing through the blood stream, and these are cancerous cells. Most of the tumors start to be benign and later will become malignant.

    I came to see the doctor in WHE and he introduced me to the stem cell treatment. They took the stem cells from my bone marrow and fat and he injected them and it has been fabulous. I don’t have the aches and pains that I used to suffer from on a constant day to day basis. I would highly recommend it to anybody who’s looking for a remedy to their back pain and their aching joints.

    WHE replaced both my hips and the result is nothing short of miraculous. I was back home after surgery in 2 days. Other than a small 3 inch scar, you would never know I had hip surgery.

The prescribed physical therapy returned me to full mobility within just a few weeks and allowed me to return to all of my pre-surgery sports and activities.
