Leaders in Bone Tumor Diagnosis and Treatment

Bone tumors occur when cells inside your bones rapidly and uncontrollably divide. Most bone tumors are benign (non-cancerous), but that does not mean they can’t cause considerable damage. As they grow and multiply, tumor cells begin to displace healthy cells, making bones weak and more prone to fracture.

Alternatively, cancerous bone tumors may originate within the bone itself (bone sarcoma), or may have spread to the bone from another location (metastatic bone cancer). Bone cancer is a complex condition that requires a comprehensive multidisciplinary care in order to optimize patient outcomes.
