In addition to the numerous specialties we offer, Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group is proud to bring advanced cancer care for musculoskeletal oncology to our patients, offering real options for treatment and management.
The orthopedic surgeons at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group are available to evaluate and treat children and adults diagnosed with a variety of orthopedic cancers, including primary and metastatic tumors of the bone and soft tissues. Metastatic tumors are cancers that have spread from other areas of the body into the bone.
Bone Cancer Services
- Our staff and physicians provide diagnostic and treatment services for patients with bone or soft tissue tumors, including musculoskeletal imaging (MR) and surgery when necessary.
- The specialists at CSOG can surgically remove a tumor while preserving and maximizing your mobility and function.
- We also do limb reconstruction and amputation for cancer patients.
- In cases of metastatic bone cancer, we can provide solutions to ease cancer pain.
Our orthopedic surgeons work closely with radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, and radiation oncologists to create an individualized treatment plan for you that balances aggressive cancer treatment with your quality of life. This collaboration is key to successful treatment of not just the cancer, but you as a whole.
For those who opt for limb reconstruction surgery, rehabilitation starts soon after treatment. Once a patient is surgically and medically stable, inpatient rehabilitation focuses on teaching patients how to move and function safely with reconstructed limbs and continues on an outpatient basis. For patients requiring amputation, post-surgery prosthetic fitting and rehabilitation is coordinated by our office.
Let us help you, as we have helped so many others dealing with musculoskeletal cancer. Call (719) 632-7669 to schedule an orthopedic oncology consultation in southern Colorado or request an appointment online.
