Our Orthopedic Oncology physicians offer non-operative and operative management of primary soft tissue and bone cancers, sarcomas, and metastatic bone cancer. As musculoskeletal oncologists, our physicians provide compassionate surgical care using the latest advances in non-operative management, minimally invasive and reconstruction surgical techniques, and pain control.

To determine if a bone or soft tissue tumor is present, our physicians often collaborate with the hospital's radiologists to administer and interpret imaging tests such as PET scans, CT scans, and MRIs. We may also perform a fine needle biopsy, where a small sample of bone or tissue is removed and analyzed to determine if cancer is present. In addition, we may use a test called flow cytometry, which allows physicians to examine the DNA in cells and determine if cancer is present.
We offer a range of treatments for bone and soft tissue tumors. They are often combined with chemotherapy before surgery to shrink a tumor, or after surgery to destroy any remaining cancer cells.
