Orthopaedic oncology, or musculoskeletal tumor surgery, is the treatment of both benign (lacking the ability to spread throughout the body) and malignant (able to spread to other organs) tumors of the extremities, pelvis and shoulder girdle. This area includes tumors that originate in the soft tissues and bone (primary) and tumors that have traveled from other organs to bone (metastatic).
We have more than 25 years of experience in treating these rare and complicated conditions in children and adults from across the commonwealth of Virginia. We work closely with hematology/oncology and radiation oncology to provide complete care for our cancer patients. Surgically, we strive whenever possible to pursue limb salvage and to maintain the highest level of function and comfort for individuals with musculoskeletal tumors.
