At the Orthopedic Department of Semmelweis University we operate an internationally recognized bone and soft tissue tumor center. Our specialty is the treatment of benign and malignant bone tumors, tumor-like lesions and surgery of soft tissue tumors. Our main aim, taking into account the appropriate oncologic radicality, is to create the conditions for the development of limb saving surgery. Limb saving surgery is an interdisciplinary activity both in diagnosis and in treatment. We have proper pathology, radiology and interventional radiology background for the fast and advanced pathomorphological and radiomorphological diagnosis of different tumors. Using modern chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other advanced cancer treatment protocols rapid access to oncology background is provided for children and adults as well, both primary and secondary bone tumors and soft tissue sarcoma cases of the extremities. The limb saving surgery after removal of the tumor is essentially a reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery in childhood and younger ages mean mainly the biological solutions (vascularized autologus bone grafts and/or homologous bone graft), otherwise in elderly ages implantation of tumor endoprostheses has a greater significance. Furthermore, the final tumor surgery requires experienced abdominal surgeon, vascular surgeon and plastic surgeon to ensure the background as well. The professional background of our clinical practice is based on participating in international conferences and spending several months abroad in different big tumor centers. Over the past 15 years, several international cancer congresses were organized in Hungary by our Department.
