Innovation and Personalized Treatments in Spine Tumor Surgery: Prediction Tools to Guide Treatment

Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Daniel Lubelski uses a case study to explain how decision-making tools can help guide treatment approaches for patients with spine tumors. The neurologic, oncologic, mechanical instability and systemic considerations (also known as NOMS) framework, which incorporates the spine instability neoplastic score (SINS), serves as a prediction tool that guides treatment decisions, reduces human bias and leads to better outcomes and greater success.
