The Orthopedic Oncology practice at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush specializes in the treatment of patients with bone and soft tissue tumors. Specifically, our orthopedic oncology doctors 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.
Our orthopedic oncologists treat the following oncological conditions:
|Chondrosarcoma||Other bone sarcomas|
Soft Tissue Sarcoma
|Malignant fibrous histiocytoma||Synovial sarcoma|
|Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans||Epithelioid sarcoma|
|Undifferentiated / plemorphic sarcoma||Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor|
Benign Bone Tumors
Benign Soft Tissue Tumors
|Schwannoma||Giant cell tumor|
Other Cancerous Bone Tumors
|Metastatic carcinoma||Pathologic fractures|
Our doctors 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. They 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.
