Bone cancer treatments and care

A diagnosis of bone cancer may bring with it feelings of anxiety, fear and even anger. Our team of experts is here to assist you with every challenge you may face and offer compassionate support at every step. We offer a range of care options so that you and your care team can build the best treatment plan for you.


Sarcoma and osteosarcoma treatments

Sarcoma and osteosarcoma are similar forms of cancer, with osteosarcoma originating in the bones, and sarcoma originating in the tissue. Whichever you or your loved one has been diagnosed with, the treatment is the same. We offer three primary methods of treatment: radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery to remove affected bone or tissue.

Bone marrow transplants

Bone marrow transplants are needed when the bone marrow, which produces red blood cells, becomes damaged. In this procedure, healthy cells from a donor are placed in your body to help your bone marrow recover and produce healthy cells again. This procedure takes place after radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy treatments for cancer have been completed.


Cancer support groups

We understand that sometimes what you need is a listening ear. That's why we value our connections to support groups across middle Tennessee, so that we can match you with a group that suits your specific needs. Whether you're handling your own diagnosis, the diagnosis of a loved one or you are stepping into survivorship, support groups can offer you much needed support and friendship. We invite you to explore our support group page or ask your nurse navigator for more information.
