Bone Tumor Program
As one of the largest clinics in the country, the Bone Tumor Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center offers multidisciplinary care to patients with bone tumors including osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma.
The Bone Tumor Program is part of the Solid Tumor Programs.
Evaluation and treatment
Patients with bone lesions, whether suspected or known to be malignant, receive initial evaluation in our multidisciplinary Musculoskeletal Tumor Clinic where they are seen by both a pediatric oncologist and an orthopedic oncology surgeon. Patients with malignant bone tumors will receive care and treatment from this unique team of providers at Texas Children’s Cancer Center; patients with benign bone tumors receive follow up care from the Department of Orthopedics at Texas Children’s Hospital. Modalities of treatment used to treat malignant bone tumors may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and/or immunotherapy.
