Who is a Musculoskeletal Oncologist doctor?
A musculoskeletal oncologist is a medical specialist who is trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancers and tumors that develop in the bones and soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system.
Musculoskeletal oncologists work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as radiologists, pathologists, and orthopedic surgeons, to develop comprehensive treatment plans that are tailored to each patient's individual needs. Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and other specialized interventions.
Musculoskeletal oncologists are highly specialized and often work in tertiary care centers or specialized cancer centers. Patients who require musculoskeletal oncology intervention may be referred to a musculoskeletal oncologist by their primary care physician or another specialist.
