Orthopedic Oncology

Department of Orthopedics at Heidelberg University Hospital

For over 20 years, we have been providing the highest level of care for patients with tumors of the bone and soft tissue in the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology. Our highly experienced, specialized team is almost exclusively engaged in the comprehensive diagnosis and effective treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the bone and soft tissues.

Our areas of concentration within the field of orthopedic oncology are based on procedures and management concepts that preserve extremities as well as posture and mobility, for example, with the help of special bone and soft tissue transplants. In collaboration with other departments we employ the most modern therapeutic measures: neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, intraoperative radiation therapy, and extracorporeal irradiation of bone tumors with the goal of preserving the extremity.
Also reconstruction of bone defects in the region of joints with a modular tumor endoprosthesis system is a common procedure in our department.
