Adult Primary Bone Sarcoma

Adults affected by bone sarcoma usually require surgical removal, leaving large bone defects.

In the majority of cases, one or a combination of many different techniques can salvage your limb. Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss which technique is best for you.

Options for replacing your missing bone include:

  • Endoprostheses – large metallic joint replacements
  • Allografts – bone from tissue donors
  • Autografts – bone from your own body
