Orthopedic Tumors

Bone and Soft Tissue Cancers

With Orthopedic Tumor treatment at Scott & White Healthcare, exceptional care is the standard.

Tumors of the bone and soft tissue are rare. Our orthopedic oncology surgeons have the expertise and extensive experience necessary to expertly care for these uncommon tumors.

And they’ll care for you with precision and accuracy, compassion and kindness.

Conditions Treated

The Division of Musculoskeletal Oncology treats many different tumors of bone and soft tissue. Most of these tumors are noncancerous (benign), but there are many cancerous tumors of bone and soft tissue as well.

Renowned for their systematic and sensitive management of orthopedic tumors, our surgeons specialize in treating the following tumors of the bone and soft tissue:

Why Choose Scott & White?

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic oncology surgeons handle a broad spectrum of cases – ranging from benign bone tumors to large musculoskeletal tumors requiring segmental bone grafts or prostheses.

Exceptional at Scott & White is the size of operations our surgeons perform. Our orthopedic surgery teams are equipped to manage 20- and 30-hour complex sarcoma cases. They also perform unique operations, such as rotationplasty, and employ computer-assisted surgical navigation, the most advanced real-time CT technology available.

The Division of Musculoskeletal Oncology offers individualized, multidisciplinary care in the long-standing Scott & White tradition of excellence.

I don’t treat tumors or cancers. I treat patients who have tumors or cancers. That’s a way saying an osteosarcoma in Bill may not be the same as an osteosarcoma in Ted – even if they’re the same gender and same age and everything else. These two individuals may be very different. They may have very different backgrounds, very different social circumstances. It’s imperative the treatment be individualized.
