Limb Salvage Surgery for Bone Tumors – at Vydehi Institute of Oncology

Bone Tumors

Bone tumors are rare malignancies that usually occur at a very young age (15 -35 yrs), seriously affecting life and quality of life as well. This is the most productive age-group when the individual’s life gets shaped and contributions toward family happen. Instead the patient’s disease grossly impacts and burdens the family.

Till few decades back, the primary treatment modality was amputation of the limb and yet most of them died due to recurrence of disease affecting lungs and liver. With introduction of chemotherapy and availability of superior prosthetic equipments, it became possible to avoid amputation and provide a functional limb at the same time completely eradicating the disease as well. We regularly carry out limb salvage surgery for malignant and benign bone tumors at our Institute. In fact, Vydehi Institute of Oncology is one of the very few Medical institutes in Karnataka performing such surgeries. Over a period of 3 years we have performed a total of 17 cases with excellent results. We are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and medical team to provide comprehensive treatment for all kinds of bone tumors.
