About Musculoskeletal Tumors

Cancer that begins in the bone (primary bone cancer) is not the same disease as cancer that starts in another part of the body and spreads or metastasizes, to the bone (secondary bone cancer). While it can occur in any of the bones of the body in Los Angeles, primary bone cancer most often occurs in the extremities, such as arms and legs.

The treatment of orthopedic tumors is a uniquely specialized discipline, and orthopedic oncologist Dr. Daniel C. Allison in Los Angeles and his multi-disciplinary team are among the few orthopedic oncology practitioners devoted to treating benign and malignant problems within this medical niche. They diagnose and treat patients with orthopedic tumors, benign soft tissue tumors, primary bone sarcomas, metastatic bone cancer, malignant soft tissue tumors, and invasive skin cancers of the pelvis, shoulder girdle, back, and extremities. Dr. Allison uses his advanced orthopedic oncology skills to perform complex procedures for evaluating and treating harmful orthopedic tumors.

Because of their significant experience with extremity cancers and their intimate knowledge of extremity anatomy and function, orthopedic oncologists are ideal for the surgical treatment of these potentially dangerous orthopedic tumors. Along with performing technically sophisticated procedures, he is also an innovator of a one-of-a-kind device to aid in hip replacements.
