New Hope for Musculoskeletal Tumors
Patients from all over the United States and the world seek the physicians at MedStar Health for their expertise in complex orthopaedic tumor surgery. Our experts provide new hope for recovery with less extreme impact to the healthy structures of the body.
It is a common misconception that, once cancer has appeared in or spread to the bones, there's little that can be done. In truth, with the advanced radiation, surgery and systemic therapies provided by the MedStar Health Cancer Network, patients with orthopedic cancers can recover and lead a pain-free life. Because we treat such a high volume and variety of patients, we understand the tremendous variation in cancer diagnosis.
Amputation was once a common solution for orthopedic cancer. Even now, less advanced centers still opt to remove limbs or parts of limbs. We use the latest and most innovative methods - including methods our surgeons have pioneered - to treat your cancer in the least invasive manner possible. Our limb-salvage rate is 98 percent, giving our patients a better chance at a return to normal function following a musculoskeletal tumor.
We also provide access for patients to receive the newest, most advanced surgical procedures by participating in orthopedic oncology research trials.
