Orthopedic Oncology Treatment Options
Mount Sinai Health System orthopedic oncologists provide the best possible care to our patients, exploring all treatment options for the highest quality of life. In particular, our limb-sparing surgery allows us to remove the tumor while preserving the arm or leg in more than 90 percent of cases. Our orthopedic oncologists treat soft tissue and bone tumors regularly with surgery and nonsurgical management.
Medical and radiation oncology involves treatment in many cases when no surgery is required. Medical oncologists treat cancer using chemotherapy, or other medications, usually administered through infusion or orally with pills. Radiation oncologists use high-energy X-rays and other types of radiation therapy to treat cancerous tumors.
If the tumor is benign (noncancerous), we will simply continuing to observe the tumor and your overall condition over time to monitor any changes that may need additional treatment.
Orthopedic spine, plastic, and vascular surgery, and pain management treatments work together to provide complete care.
