Abstract

Spine stereotactic body radiotherapy is based on delivering high biologically effective doses to spinal metastases, with the intent to maximize both tumor and pain control. The purpose of this review is to outline the technical details of spine stereotactic body radiotherapy, contrast clinical outcomes to low biologically effective dose conventional palliative radiotherapy, discuss the role of surgery in the era of spine stereotactic body radiotherapy, and summarize the major serious adverse events that patients would otherwise not be at risk of with conventional radiotherapy.
