Treatments We Provide
Chemotherapy is usually required both before and after surgery. Chemotherapy destroys pockets of osteosarcoma cells in the body, including those too small to show on X-ray scans.
External Radiation Therapy
Radiation using high-energy X-rays may be used in addition to surgery, or afterward, to ensure that any remaining osteosarcoma cells have been destroyed.
Highly Specialized Osteosarcoma Surgery
Surgery can often remove bone cancer. Wherever possible, we use the most innovative surgical techniques that try to avoid amputation and allow a "limb-sparing" procedure.
Localized radiation can attack specific osteosarcoma cells that may remain after surgery. It has fewer side effects than conventional radiation.
An entire team of medical professionals with advanced training and years of experience deliver radiation treatment and care. Together, they continually work on ways to make radiation therapy more effective while at the same time preventing side effects.
