Penn Orthopaedics

Penn Orthopaedic Oncology Service

Penn's Orthopaedic Oncology Service provides comprehensive clinical care and surgery for patients who have tumors of the musculoskeletal system. The orthopaedic specialists are nationally recognized leaders in patient care.

Team members specialize in the treatment of pediatric and adult malignant and benign tumors of bone and soft tissue with a special interest in limb preservation techniques and major reconstructions following limb removal. The goal is to shrink tumors as much as possible before surgery to minimize damage to surrounding bone or tissue.

Research shows that more experience leads to better patient outcomes and Penn's Orthopaedic Oncology Service is one of the largest practices in the United States. Every year, the orthopaedic oncologists see nearly 1,000 new orthopaedic tumor patients and perform nearly 600 surgical procedures. The multidisciplinary program provides the latest treatment techniques tailored to the patient's individual needs.
