The Orthopaedic Oncology Service is a regional referral service for the surgical treatment of musculoskeletal neoplasms and tumor-like conditions.

The service provides care for primary benign and malignant tumors arising within bone or soft tissues for both children and adults. Musculoskeletal oncology surgeons pursue aggressive treatment of metastatic skeletal lesions to prevent threatened fracture or to stabilize completed fractures. The primary thrust is in the area of limb salvage for malignant tumors of the extremities. Patient referrals available here at UC Davis Health.

Specialists reconstruct limbs using custom endoprosthetic replacements or allografts and frequently excise benign tumors and reconstruct bone with bone graft or demineralized cortical bone substitute.  For more information on treatment of bone and soft-tissue sarcoma, please visit the UC Davis Cancer Center website.
