1. Bone Tumor: The first priority of a surgeon is to fully remove the malignant lesion and a part of normal tissue to further reduce the risk of low-grade tumors of bone. During the surgery, muscle, bone and other tissues affected by the tumor is also removed.

2. Bone Sarcomas: Bone Sarcomas or Soft tissue sarcomas are removed by limb-sparing surgery wherein the tumor, lymph nodes or tissues are removed. A 1 inch healthy tissue is also removed on all side of the tumor to further decrease the chances recurrence.

  • Radiation or chemotherapy may be advised post operation.
