Bone Cancer

The UofL Brown Cancer Center treats more osteosarcoma, or bone cancer, patients than most other cancer centers. In fact, we are one of a handful of centers in the world treating bone cancer.

We bring together a team of experts that includes specialists from many areas to give personal, customized care. We use specialized therapies and technologies to be sure you receive the most advanced treatment with the least impact on your body.

 As a leading cancer center, we constantly work to discover new treatments and innovations.

It is best to have a biopsy to diagnose bone cancer done at the same place you receive treatment. It is essential to go to a specialized cancer center that has experience in osteosarcoma biopsy. If the biopsy is done incorrectly, it may make it more difficult later for the surgeon to remove all of the cancer without also having to remove all or part of the arm or leg. A biopsy that is not done correctly also may cause the cancer to spread.
