How is Bone Tumour Treated?
Bone Tumours may have to be removed if cancerous or if they threaten your health or surrounding joints. Sometimes this may only be achieved by amputation of a particular limb.
On occasion (dependent on the size and location of the tumour) the external fixator device called the Ilizarov can be used to grow back portions of natural bone to fill the space/hole in the skeleton where the bone and tumour has been surgically removed.
Bone Tumour Surgery is treated exactly the same through the same proceedure as Ilizarov Fixation for Bone Reconstruction: Treatment of Osteomyelitis with Plastic Surgery Reconstruction (Bone Infection), the actual theory of how we replace or grow new bone is exactly the same.
