Limb Salvage and Reconstruction of the Pelvis and Extremities
If you have a bone or soft tissue tumor, your doctor may need to remove bone or tissue to remove the cancer. Because our experts use the latest surgical techniques, they can usually reconstruct a limb (arm or leg) or part of the pelvis even after removing a large amount of bone or tissue. Bone from elsewhere in the body and advanced artificial limb technology can help bring back normal function.
Amputating (removing) an arm or leg is rarely necessary. The goal of modern tumor surgery is to preserve the limb.
