Hello Everyone,

My husband has recently been diagnosed with Chordoma (sacrum area). Has anyone treated this type of cancer through alternative treatment such as Dr. Burzynski or others.

Thank you for your help.

Dear jjhnyc,

I was diagnosed with chordoma in the sacrum.
Surgery is probably most viable option.
I am happy to hear you underwent a successful surgery and you're cured.
I'd appreciate a lot if you could share with me the name of the neurosurgeon who was so successful in treating you.

Many thanks and best of wishes,

Viviana

I don't have the names of any specific neurosurgeons, but I can offer one other idea, as you go about the journey of determining your best treatment for your chordoma. If radiation is on the table, consider proton therapy as well... it can often have fewer harmful side effects than traditional radiation. Worth checking out!

Stay away from Burzynski, it's a scam.

The most effective treatment is agreed to be to remove as much of the chordoma tumor as possible and follow up with radiation. The most effective radiation seems to be proton beam.
