From diagnosis to treatment, specialists on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas work with physical therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists and others to provide the best possible care for orthopedic oncology and complex reconstruction. An orthopedic oncology navigator is available to guide patients through their journey.

Bone Cancers

Tumors within the bone destroy normal bone tissue and most often begin as cancer that has spread from another organ, such as the breasts, lung or prostate. Often, simple observation with physical exams or X-rays is all that is necessary for benign conditions, while more complex benign and malignant tumors usually require surgical removal.

Diagnosing Bone Cancer

Texas Health Dallas employees and medical staff physicians can quickly and effectively diagnose bone cancer. Diagnostic tests may include X-rays, blood tests, bone scan, computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, biopsy and angiogram. Once a diagnosis is made, orthopedic oncology specialists on the medical staff can perform advanced surgeries, as well as make recommendations about other treatments.
