Why Choose Us
Specialized care for benign & malignant bone tumors
Bone cancer may be primary (arising from the bones, such as osteosarcoma) or metastatic (spreading to the bones from cancer in another location, such as the prostate or breast). Some bone tumors are benign. Each type of bone tumor requires a unique treatment approach, ideally from a multidisciplinary team of specialists.
At NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Hospital Cancer Center, our bone cancer experts have strong expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of benign and malignant bone tumors, including osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, bone-forming and cartilage-forming tumors, fibrous and fibrohistiocytic tumors, round cell tumors, giant cell tumors, and vascular tumors.
Our bone tumor specialists combine their skills and experience to customize a plan of treatment aimed at curing your cancer while preserving your form and function — avoiding amputation whenever possible and offering reconstructive surgery to restore limb function after a tumor is removed. Our team also participates in clinical trials evaluating novel treatments to advance the care of people with bone tumors. You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial of a promising treatment.
