Duke orthopaedic surgeons offer diagnostic and therapeutic services for bone and soft tissue tumors in both adult and pediatric patients.
Our orthopaedic oncologists offer care for the following orthopaedic tumors:
Benign bone and soft tissue tumors: Benign tumors of the bone or soft tissue may require surgical treatment to establish a diagnosis or for removal of the tumor.
Bone and soft tissue sarcoma: Duke orthopaedic surgeons offer therapeutic and reconstructive limb-salvage surgery for bone and soft tissue cancer (sarcoma) as part of Duke's Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Center.
Metastatic carcinoma: Duke orthopaedic surgeons can assist patients with metastatic carcinoma in the bone who might benefit from diagnostic procedures or prophylactic fixation on impending fractures.
At Duke Orthopaedics, our goal is to cure the disease while preserving the function of the limb.
Most sarcomas are best treated with a combination of therapies, which may include surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy.
Our team of specialists in adult and pediatric medical oncology, radiation oncology, diagnostic radiology, surgical pathology, orthopaedic and surgical oncology, and vascular and reconstructive surgery use the latest technology to accurately diagnose the disease and create a treatment plan best suited to the particular disease.
Our team works to devise the best treatment plan for each patient, using both standard procedures and the latest innovative techniques, many developed at Duke.
