Our orthopaedic oncology surgeons at The Bone & Joint Center specialize in providing the highest level of care and compassion to patients experiencing musculoskeletal tumors.
Orthopaedic oncology focuses on the evaluation and treatment of tumors of the connective tissues: bone, cartilage, fibrous tissue, fat, nervous tissue, vessels, and muscle. These include benign and malignant bone and soft tissue tumors and metastatic bone disease. Musculoskeletal tumors can affect patients of all ages and many require a multidisciplinary team of practitioners to maximize outcomes.
It is best for any aggressive bone or soft tissue tumor to be referred to an orthopaedic oncology specialist early in the evaluation of the lesion. Time from initial onset of symptoms to definitive diagnosis can be hastened by early referral for an appropriate, efficient diagnostic workup, culminating in a biopsy.
