What is Orthopedic Oncology?

  • Topic Info:Orthopedic oncology specializes in the treatment of men and women with bone cancer, sarcoma or cancer that has spread to the bone from other areas of the body.

    The treatment of metastatic bone cancer is evolving rapidly; advances in treatment have made it possible to treat metastatic disease more like a chronic condition and less like a terminal illness.

    Special guest, Dr. Richard Schmidt, MD, discusses how to improve quality of life and pain management for both patients with metastatic cancer and cancer patients suffering from unrelated issues, such as arthritis, and osteoporosis.
