Extremity Tumor Program

The Institute for Limb Preservation is recognized for its national expertise in the management of pediatric and adult extremity tumors. Our multidisciplinary team provides expert evaluation and treatment for patients with bone or soft tissue tumors.

Best Reported Survival Outcomes for Pediatric and Adult Osteogenic Sarcoma

The Institute for Limb Preservation physicians collaborated to develop our intra-arterial chemotherapy for treatment of osteosarcoma in adults and children. We have shown this protocol is superior to other published protocols in long-term survival and extremity sparing surgical procedures.

Innovative Surgical Options

Our approach to patient care focuses on “life over limb,” but with successful management of tumors using the appropriate chemotherapy protocols, we offer many limb-sparing surgical options. Some of these innovative techniques have been pioneered by physicians on our team. 

  • Allograft Procedures
  • Clinical Research
  • Custom Implant Designs
  • Foam Metal Technologies
  • Growing Prosthesis for Children
  • Innovative Amputation Techniques
  • Soft Tissue Reconstruction Options

Management of Bone Metastatic Disease

In addition to primary bone and soft tissue tumors, our physicians specialize in the management of patients with metastatic tumors to the bone. We can work with the referring oncologist to best approach pathologic fracture processes and plan surgical intervention.
