We demonstrated a successful case of surgical treatment of the patient with metastatic lesion of upper cervical spine with respect to multidisciplinary approach. We performed simultaneous two-stage surgical intervention, the first stage being occipitospondylodesis by multi-segment construction; and second —tumor resection from expanded combined access. It has been stated that the proposed surgical tactics allows performing curative resection in one surgical session without neurological deficit buildup in the postoperative period.
