Conditions We Treat

Adamantinoma

An adamantinoma is a rare cancerous tumor of the tibia that usually occurs in adolescents and young adults whose bones have not yet stopped growing. Adamantinomas are capable of spreading and require surgery to remove. Fewer than 1% of all cancerous tumors of the bone are adamantinomas. These slow-growing tumors are typically found in the tibia, but they can also affect the fibula and have even been found in the bones of the arms, ribs, spine, pelvis and foot. Adamantinomas are aggressive, and they may even spread to soft tissues if not addressed promptly.

Chondrosarcoma

Chondrosarcomas are malignant tumors that usually begin in the bones but can spread to other anatomical soft tissue in the vicinity of the origination area. Chondrosarcomas are typically found in the pelvis, hip and shoulder. The thing that makes these tumors unique is that their cells produce cartilage. Chondrosarcomas can be fast or slow-growing. Surgical removal of the tumor is the typical treatment.

Ewing’s sarcoma

Ewing’s sarcoma is a rare type of bone cancer that is most common in children and teenagers. Ewing’s sarcoma often begins in the bones of the leg and pelvis, though it can sometimes start in the soft tissues of the limbs, chest, and abdomen, as well. Surgery to remove the sarcoma as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy are the standard treatment for Ewing’s sarcoma.

Pigmented Villanodular Synovitis

Pigmented villonodular synovitis or PVNS is a condition characterized by the thickening of the synovium, which is the thin layer of tissue that lines all the joints and tendons in the human body. Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis tumors that develop from this thickening are not cancerous, and they do not spread to other parts of the body. Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis typically affects the knee, but it may also appear in other joints of the body like the hip. Surgery is almost always necessary to remove a Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis tumor.

Metastatic bone disease

Metastatic bone disease is cancer that begins in another organ such as the breast, prostate, lungs, or kidneys and then spreads to the bones. Not all cancers spread easily to the bones. Metastatic bone disease causes pain in the area of the bone tumors. It also puts the patient at greater risk of breaks and fractures, as the metastatic tumors weaken the structures of the bones.

Osteosarcoma

Osteosarcoma is a type of bone cancer that most often affects children and teens whose bones are still into growth and development stage. The malignant osteosarcoma cells produce irregular bone tissue. The tumors usually develop at the end of long bones such as the tibia, fibula and femur in the legs and the ulna, radius and humerus in the arms, but they can appear anywhere in the body. Treatment for osteosarcoma involves surgically removing the tumor and then undergoing chemotherapy.
