- Event: 7th International Conference of the Novalis Circle 2017
- Topic: Spine Metastasis

Josh Yamada, MD, Radiation Oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center discusses a spine metastasis multi-modality decision framework. First he presents spine metastases as a 21st century problem along and the challenges that they bring to treatment. He discusses the treatment and outcomes with conventional radiation therapy versus radiosurgery versus surgery using the NOMS (Neurologic, Oncologic, Mechanical Stability and Systemic Therapy) Decision Framework.
