Bone Cancer Care

Osteosarcoma is a disease in which cancer (malignant cells) are found in the bone. It is the most common form of bone cancer. It occurs most often in adolescents and young adults. Other less-common forms of cancer can form in the bones and even the soft tissue or organs of the chest or abdomen.

Surgery for bone cancer is typically provided by an orthopedic surgeon. Sacred Heart’s medical staff includes a musculoskeletal oncologist (an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in treating bone cancer). Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are also used to treat bone cancer.
