Surgery

The role of surgery in cancer is diverse. It can be used as a definitive surgery in some cancers like colon cancer, but in multiple myeloma, it is mainly used to protect against or treat fractures induced by bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma. Bones that are liabel for fracture are fixated and those fractured are reduced and fixated. Spinal cord fractures can occur in the form of compression fractures that need decompression.
