A multidisciplinary team approach to diagnose and treat tumors of the bone and soft tissues
At Saint Louis University Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center, a multidisciplinary team approach including surgeons, medical oncologists and radiologists, is used to diagnose and treat primary benign and malignant tumors of the bone and soft tissues. Various surgical and minimally invasive techniques are available to treat cancer that has spread to the bone or soft tissue. Skeletal and joint reconstruction procedures for bone tumors allow our doctors to perform limb salvage for the majority of patients, and surgical treatments for soft tissue tumors aim to restore our patients to health and maximum function as quickly as possible.
- Benign bone tumors and lesions
- Primary bone cancer (bone sarcomas)
