List of Treatments


  • Brain and CNS Tumor Treatment for Children: The majority of infantile and pediatric brain tumors require surgical excision, or at the very least a biopsy, as part of the therapy. The surgeon suggests surgery as a first step to reduce intracranial pressure caused by the tumor and remove as much of it as is safely feasible.


  • Rotationplasty: Children with bone tumors at the knee may undergo the surgical technique known as rotationplasty. The top tibia, knee, and bottom of the femur are surgically removed. The lower leg is subsequently connected to the femur after being turned 180 degrees.


  • Tumor surgery: Tumor removal is a typical cancer surgery procedure. The doctor frequently removes the tumor along with some of the surrounding healthy tissue. The margin refers to the tissue around the tumor.


  • Limb Salvage Surgery: It is a type of surgery used to remove a tumor from a limb (arm or leg) without amputating the limb entirely. In addition, the bone and tissue surrounding the tumor may be removed. An implant may then be used to replace the amputated portion of the limb.


  • Extended Curettage and Joint Preservation: The most popular method of treating benign bone tumors and lytic lesions is extended curettage. The entire tumor must be removed, and the joint may need to be rebuilt if the tumor is particularly big and threatens to involve the joint, which is called joint preservation. 


  • Sarcoma Surgery: Sarcomas are frequently treated with surgery. Surgery may be able to remove a sarcoma, depending on its location and size. Surgery aims to remove the whole tumor and at least 1 to 2 cm of surrounding healthy tissue.


  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma: Malignant (cancer) cells develop in the body's soft tissues as a result of the condition known as soft tissue sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcomas are frequently treated with surgery. Surgery may be able to remove a sarcoma, depending on its location and size.


  • Cytology Guided by Ultrasound: This process consists of an image guided by ultrasound to perform cytology test that employs ultrasound technology to assist Specialist Radiologists in the performance of needle biopsies. The Specialist Radiologist uses ultrasound equipment to find and guide a specific needle to the proper place in the body during an Ultrasound-guided procedure.

  • IMRT: Conformal radiotherapy includes intensity-modulated radiation (IMRT). With conformal radiotherapy, the radiation beams are precisely shaped to fit the cancerous tissue. A linear accelerator (LINAC), a common radiation device, can be used for IMRT.


  • Tumors and Cysts: A cyst is a sac that can contain air, liquids, or other substances. Any portion of the body, including bones, organs, and soft tissues, can develop a cyst. Most cysts are noncancerous. Tumors are defined as any unwanted mass of cells or inflammation in the body. As compared to cysts, tumors are cancerous. Tumors and cysts are removed by surgery, often performed under highly observed conditions.


  • Stem Cell transplantation: It is a process in which a patient receives healthy stem cells that are replaced with damaged stem cells that were caused by radiation or high-dose chemotherapy treatment. The competent stem cells may come from the patient's blood or bone marrow or from a donor who is identical or similar.


  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia: A malignancy of the blood and bone marrow is known as acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The main form of treatment for AML is chemotherapy.


  • Low-grade Lymphoma Treatment: One form of NHL cancer that begins in the lymphatic system's cells is known as low-grade lymphomas. Low-grade lymphomas progress more slowly than high-grade lymphomas because they include cancer cells that proliferate slowly. The afflicted lymph nodes most likely need radiation treatment. This may both prolong the management of the lymphoma and cure it.


  • Osteosarcoma Treatment: Osteosarcoma is an uncommon bone malignancy. Amputation surgery is the treatment for osteosarcoma, in which a large local excision is used to eliminate the tumor. Tissue and bone removed from the patient's body may be replaced with a graft or an implant, such as artificial bone.
