Our Approach

Musculoskeletal tumors can be either non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Malignant tumors of bone and soft tissue are called sarcomas. Sarcomas are some of the rarest tumors in medicine and require treatment by specialists with expertise in orthopedic cancers.

For our sarcoma patients we provide multidisciplinary care in the region’s only comprehensive cancer care center - the Georgia Cancer Center - where our patients receive state-of-the-art, quality care and support to help them live healthy, fulfilling lives.

Our orthopedic oncologists also treat patients with other malignancies that affect the musculoskeletal system including:

  • Metastatic disease
  • Fractures
  • Trauma
  • Arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Infections

Our orthopedic oncologists are part of a sarcoma team which includes medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, specialized pathologists, musculoskeletal radiologists, and other specialists. Our goal is to maximize the function of each patient with advanced surgical and reconstructive techniques.
