Orthopaedic oncology, a highly specialized branch of orthopaedic surgery, is dedicated to addressing both benign and malignant tumors affecting the musculoskeletal system. These tumors can have a profound impact on patients’ lives, often leading them to seek the expertise of orthopaedic oncologists. Musculoskeletal oncology encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of primary bone and soft tissue malignancies, as well as metastatic carcinomas that have spread to the musculoskeletal system from other primary sites, such as breast, lung, thyroid, kidney, or prostate cancer. Given the rarity and complexity of these conditions, it is essential to consult with physicians who have received specialized training in orthopaedic oncology.
