Bone Cancer: Can the Limb be Spared?

January 24, 2010

An otherwise healthy patient has been having knee pain for a few months and ends up visiting the local emergency room where she is diagnosed with an osteosarcoma of her lower extremity. She initially sees an old-time general practitioner in the area who discusses the serious potential of requiring an amputation for treatment and refers her to a local surgeon. The patient searches at length and finally finds Dr. James Wittig, and is told that the limb can be spared. It is important to spread the word that nowadays, most patients with sarcomas can safely undergo limb sparing surgery, says Dr. Wittig, Chief of Orthopedic Oncology and Sarcoma Surgery and Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
