Orthopedic Oncology Conditions We Treat

Bone cancers and sarcoma's come in many different forms.  The most common conditions we treat are metastatic cancers — cancers that have spread from their primary location into the bones.  These metastatic cancers are especially common in:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Thyroid cancer

We also see many forms of primary bone cancer, or cancer that originates in the bone.  Common primary bone cancers include.

  • Soft tissue sarcomas
  • Myeloma
  • Lymphoma to bone or soft tissues
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Ewing sarcoma
  • Chondrosarcoma

We also treat bone cysts, giant cell tumors, osteoid osteomas, osteochondromas, enchondromas, nonossifying fibromas, chondroblastomas, fibrous dysplasia, lipomas, and hemangiomas.

Bone Cancer Treatments

We perform surgery when needed to either remove the tumor or stabilize the bone affected by the tumor. We also provide nonoperative treatments for tumors that don't require surgery.  After meeting with our orthopedic oncology team we will help you determine the best course of action to achieve the best possible results.
