Our orthopaedic oncologists 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.
Specialists work in a collaborative environment with subspecialists in medical oncology, surgical oncology, radiation therapy and others. By combining the expertise of Penn specialists, an individualized treatment plan is designed for every patient. The team coordinates the many facets of care and communicates regularly with patients and other team members.
