Children and adults with bone and soft tissue diseases require both a comprehensive and a personal approach for the diagnosis and treatment of their complex disorders.
To accomplish this, an interdisciplinary team of dedicated specialists must oversee every aspect of each patient’s care—from the first symptoms through all treatments (often including complex reconstructive surgery) and rehabilitation.
Our Tumor and Bone Disease Service delivers that level of care to each and every one of our pediatric and adult patients who turn to us for the most advanced diagnostic and treatment approaches—along with the personal and compassionate attention we provide—for bone and soft tissue disorders including:
post-traumatic complications such as nonunion and painful joints
In collaboration with the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presberian/Columbia University Medical Center, our service is able to offer exceptionally comprehensive care for patients with malignant bone and soft tissue diseases.
The members of this dedicated interdisciplinary team have extensive research and clinical expertise in their respective specialties including adult and pediatric medical oncology; reconstructive surgery; radiation oncology; radiology; and musculoskeletal pathology. This enables the team to identify and deliver what they carefully determine are the best medical and surgical options for each individual patient under its care—treatments including novel therapeutic modalities, advanced reconstructive techniques, and limb-saving surgery.
Orthopaedic surgeons in the Tumor and Bone Disease Service also perform complex reconstructive surgery. Patients requiring this type of surgery benefit from expertise of an orthopaedic surgeon—who specializes in allograft cartilage transplantation, bone allografts, custom-designed expanding tumor prostheses for growing children, and tumor prostheses for adults—and the skills of Columbia Orthopaedic microvascular surgeons who specialize in reconstructive surgery.
