Orthopedic Oncology

The orthopedic subspecialty, referred to as bone tumors or orthopedic oncology, is a highly specialized field. Orthopedic oncologists provide diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant musculoskeletal tumors.

A musculoskeletal tumor is an abnormal growth that may occur in the bone or soft tissue, such as muscle, tendon, nerve, fat, and blood vessels. Tumors can be either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). They can occur in people of all ages and affect any body part.

Common bone and soft tissue oncology care is offered at Turan Turan Hospital.
