The Rush Approach to Bone Cancer (Sarcoma) Care

When you or your child is diagnosed with bone or soft tissue sarcoma, we care for you every step of the way.

As one of the busiest sarcoma cancer centers in Illinois, we have cared for thousands of children, adolescents, young adults and adults with bone cancer (sarcoma) and other musculoskeletal cancers.

That expertise allows us to tailor treatment to your specific situation and needs.

While every treatment is specific to each patient, our overall goal is to treat your cancer while preserving your limb functionality as much as possible. And our nationally renowned team of orthopedic oncologists has helped pioneer advanced treatments that do just that.

We specialize in limb-sparing procedures that focus on removing the tumor without amputation. We also leverage new technologies such as 3D printing and custom-made surgical implants to help safely and accurately remove tumors and restore function.

Rush Excellence in Bone Cancer (Sarcoma) Care

  • Nationally recognized for excellence: U.S. News & World Report has ranked Rush University Medical Center's cancer and orthopedic programs among the best in the nation. That means you can expect the best care possible with orthopedic oncology providers who are leaders in the field.
  • Leading-edge treatments for bone cancer: Rush's orthopedic oncology team is leading an international clinical trial that is studying a new technique that uses low-temperature plasma for sarcoma surgery. This innovative tool allows our orthopedic oncology surgeons to remove tumors without damaging surrounding tissue — allowing for fewer functional problems. It can also be used to get rid of any microscopic cancer cells, which lowers the chance of cancer recurrence. Rush University Medical Center is one of just two international sites participating in this trial.
  • Dedicated care for adolescents and young adults: Our adolescent and young adult sarcoma program tailors care to the distinct needs of patients who are 15 to 39 years old — who often need both adult and pediatric care. This program focuses on curing the cancer, while also preserving quality of life. Treatment can include limb-sparing surgery that removes the tumor without amputation; expandable prostheses that can help fix any limb discrepancies; and fertility preservation that allows young patients an opportunity to have children of their own in the future.
  • Care close to you: It's easier than ever to get academic medicine close to where you live. Our orthopedic oncology providers can see you at locations in Chicago, Oak Park, Oak Brook, Lisle, Westchester and Winfield.
