Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do you treat benign orthopedic tumors ?
We treat osteoid osteomas, blastomas, enchondromas, fibromas, bone cysts, and giant cell tumours, among other benign orthopaedic tumours.
Dr. Bhavya Shah offers specialist follow-up care and monitoring for benign orthopaedic tumours in East Tennessee, which is conveniently close to home.
Q. What makes a bone tumor malignant or benign ?
Malignant tumours develop more quickly and have a higher proclivity for metastasizing, or spreading to other parts of the body. Benign tumours grow at a slower rate and may not need to be surgically removed for a long time, however they must be examined for growth on a regular basis.
Q. Will I need surgery ?
This is dependent on the type and stage of your orthopaedic cancer. Nonsurgical techniques such as radiation and chemotherapy can be used to treat some cancers. Others may require these techniques in addition to surgical intervention, while others may only require surgical treatment.
Q. Who is an orthopedic oncology specialist ?
Orthopedic oncologists are orthopaedic surgeons who have had additional training and experience in the treatment of cancers and malignancies of the bone, joint, and muscle.
Orthopedic oncology doctors, like our own Dr. Bhavya Shah, are frequently fellowship-trained to improve their particular skills in this sector.
