The multiplicity of clinical presentations and the lack of consensus explain that the treatment of spine metastasis remains controversial. Optimal treatment requires a truly multidisciplinary approach, involving oncologists, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, rheumatologists and spine surgeons. Recent progress in all these areas have allowed to provide safe and effective therapeutic solutions tailored to each situation. We remind, in this work, the main progress in the surgical field, specifying the role of surgery in the current therapeutic arsenal.
