Surgery and Reconstruction
Once you have bone and soft tissue diagnostic imaging and biopsies complete, one of our orthopaedic oncologists has probably discussed a treatment plan with you. Typically, the treatment for these types of tumors is surgery and perhaps, chemotherapy, but each patient is different, so your doctor will discuss the details of your treatment plan with you.
