Bone Cancer, Cancer-Related Bone Issues and Extremity Soft-Tissue Cancers
Our orthopaedic oncologists specialize in caring for a rare cancer called sarcoma, which is bone- and soft-tissue cancers, as well as caring for cancer patients and bone problems. We treat:
- Bone and soft-tissue cancers in adults and children;
- Metastatic cancers, including prostate, breast, kidney, lung and myeloma, among others, that spread to the bone; and
- Chemotherapy- and radiation-related bone problems, including fractures, arthritis, infections and avascular necrosis (loss of blood supply to the bone, which can result in bone death).
What is an Orthopaedic Oncologist?
Only about 300 orthopaedic oncologists practice in the United States - and the only ones in this community are here at Augusta University. This exclusive group of doctors is specially trained to care for and treat the fragile bones of patients with bone and other cancers and have expertise in treating soft-tissue cancers of the extremities.
