Osteosarcoma: Jaliyah's Story

Complex Limb Reconstruction

As experts in limb-sparing surgeries and complex limb reconstruction, such as rotationplasty, our orthopaedic oncology team focuses on both removing tumors and rebuilding affected limbs to provide patients with the most functionality possible. 

All medical specialties involved in successful limb preservation are located in one place, so that you don't have to travel to multiple locations. During initial consultations, patients are often able to see all of the physicians that will be involved with their care in a single visit.

Metastatic Bone Disease

Because advancements in medical oncology are helping patients live longer with disease, they are more likely to develop new problems, such as bone metastasis and pathologic fractures. Our experts work with oncologists treating the primary cancer to offer a coordinated, seamless approach to care for our patients and help them maintain function and control of their body while managing their pain and quality of life.
