Bone Cancer Treatment
Comprehensive care for bone and soft-tissue tumors
Different types of bone cancers respond differently to various treatment options, which may involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of the three. Our goal is to spare as much of the limb and tissue as possible.

In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, Norton Cancer Institute gives our Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
