Bone cancer is a malignant tumor resulting from the atypical growth of cells either in the bones or any other body part. A significant number of bone cancer cases are metastatic, wherein the tumor originates in remote parts and infects bones. While the causes of bone cancer are yet to be uncovered, there are specific risk factors, such as exposure to radiation and alkylating agents, specific gene mutation and so on. The prominent symptom of the medical condition is a constant pain in the bones, which may worsen with time. As the chances of recovery increase with the early presentation, it makes sense to seek medical help on the onset of pain.
The Department of Orthopedic Oncology at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre, exclusive cancer centre with NABH and NABL accreditations and ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications in Delhi, India has the right combination of technology and workforce to ensure world-class bone and soft tissue tumor treatments to domestic and offshore patients. Adopting a multi-modality approach for your bone tumor treatment, we put together a multispecialty team for complete cancer care. A typical bone tumor management team will include orthopedic oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, reconstructive surgeons, surgical and radiation oncologists, counsellors, nurses and physiotherapists. As each aspect is catered to with professionalism and compassion, better patient outcomes are always anticipated.
We are well-equipped to manage all types of Orthopedic Oncological conditions. Whether you are suffering from Primary Bone Cancers like Sarcomas or Metastatic Bone Disease, we can take care of it all. We are also positioned to deliver treatments for several other bone malignancies, such as Myeloma and Lymphoma, along with Soft Tissue Sarcomas and Spine tumors. Benign tumors like Giant Cell Tumors, Aneurysmal Bone Cyst and Chondroblastoma are also managed. Besides bone cancer treatment, we can also support non-oncological orthopedic needs of patients hospitalized for other medical conditions.
We have the technology and skills to carry out super specialized surgical procedures for bone tumor treatment. We put our best foot forward to conduct limb salvage surgery with endoprosthetic replacement, vascularised bone autografts and extracorporeal radiotherapy. Our limb salvage surgery portfolio also includes re-implantation of tumor bone and total femur and total humerus replacement. We also perform specialized soft tissue sarcomas, internal hemipelvectomy, en bloc resections of primary spinal tumors and extended curettage of benign aggressive bone tumors.
Though the nature and scope of surgeries differ vastly, we conduct each with a common objective – to get rid of the malignant tumor while keeping the limb in the best possible shape. Our bone cancer treatment relies on the evidence-based principles supplemented by technology, research and personalized care. As a part of bone tumor management, we also provide counselling services to aid the recovery process. A dedicated desk is also available for overseas patients reaching out to us for advanced cancer care. The desk is well-equipped to facilitate trouble-free, fast registration and consultation. The foreign patients will be provided information on visa duration through an International Patient Coordinator only upon ascertaining the exact medical requirements.
