Musculoskeletal Oncology Program

Musculoskeletal tumors form in the body's connective tissue, which includes bone and cartilage. Some of these tumors are malignant, which means they have the ability to spread to other parts of the body. Malignant tumors often are called sarcomas.

The most common types of musculoskeletal cancer are osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcomas, which usually happen in children and teens. Care often includes surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Our team develops an individual treatment plan for each patient that outlines specific goals of care for tumor treatment, follow-up and rehabilitation. Our cancer specialists and orthopedic surgeons are highly experienced in bone and soft tissue care.
