Surgery of CUP

Appropriate surgeries for metastases to the spine are mainly laminectomy, decompression, and spinal fusion. In peripheral bone, orthopedic surgery may be appropriate for manifest fractures, threatening fractures, or in some cases of pain.

For certain manifestations of metastasis (for example lymph node station or a solitary brain metastasis) surgery may be considered.
