The Orthopedic Oncology practice at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush specializes in the treatment of patients with bone and soft tissue tumors. Specifically, our physicians are leaders in limb salvage, bone substitutes, and bone transplantation. They provide the most advanced surgical reconstructive techniques available, such as limb-sparing operations using human bone transplants. These physicians are also pioneers in the use of bone substitutes and self-lengthening pediatric implants that can be lengthened as a child grows—without additional trips to the operating room. Physicians at Rush were the first in Chicago to use these revolutionary implants, and today are some of the few nationwide who are capable of performing the procedures.
