One Patient's Experience
Sacral Chordoma: Susan’s Story
After being diagnosed with a rare sacral chordoma in Florida, Susan traveled to Johns Hopkins to have it removed by neurosurgeon Jean-Paul Wolinsky, M.D. With Susan’s approval, her resected tumor was replicated in the laboratory by neurosurgeon Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, M.D., meaning part of Susan will continue to live on to help find a cure or treatment options for chordomas.
