Orthopedic Oncology

The National Orthopedic Oncology Department at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center provides treatment for adults and children with malignant and benign tumors in the bones, joints and surrounding soft tissues, as well as other diseases of the skeletal system. These medical conditions can pose a serious threat and require an individualized approach and specialty treatment.

Our Orthopedic Oncology department uses state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technologies and innovations in the field of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation. Our specialists’ extensive experience and high expertise levels attract thousands of patients – adults, pediatrics and teens – from Israel and the world. In addition to their clinical practice our specialists are also actively involved in research, representing our department in numerous international forums and conferences each year.

Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is known for its holistic multidisciplinary approach, allowing for the most efficient interprofessional teamwork. This is why our treatment staff consists of oncologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons (specially trained to work in this highly sophisticated field of medicine), neurosurgeons, microsurgeons, vascular surgeons, etc.

Although the ultimate goal is to cure each and every one of our patients, our specialists also go to great lengths to preserve a severed limb. In order to achieve this goal, we use the most innovative and comprehensive treatment protocols including surgical removal of tumors, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The use of cutting-edge treatments enables us to avoid limb amputation (and disability) and prevent any functional limitations in 90%-95% of the cases involving musculoskeletal and soft tissue tumors. This enables our patients to get back to their normal daily activities without experiencing any discomfort. In order to facilitate full functional restoration of the soft tissues, micro-neurosurgeries and microvascular surgeries are performed, along with rehabilitation procedures.In cases where bone resection is necessary, every effort is made to achieve restoration and augmentation of the bone using innovative high-tech prosthetic joint implants, adjustable chips, modular implants, etc.  To facilitate future bone growth in children, we use specialized expandable implants (prostheses), remotely adjustable to accommodate the growing child.
