Orthopedic Oncology


The Orthopedic Oncology unit at 57357 is the first unit in Egypt and the Middle East to specialize in treating bone and soft-tissue tumors diagnosed at a very young age, specifically children under 10 years. The pediatric age group most commonly treated tumors are Ewing sarcoma and Osteosarcoma.

Our goal is the preservation of the life and limbs of our patients. Reconstruction of limbs in this young age group of patients requires a great deal of experience, patience, and, last but not least, great support for parents and child by all multidisciplinary team members, including orthopedic surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiotherapists, psychologists, and specialized nursing staff.

The challenge in limb salvage surgery in children lies in the complexity of removing long segments of bone and the growing part of the bone. Our goal is to restore proper function and length of the limbs of these children so they can lead an active and prosperous life in society. We use the latest advanced technology and experience in microvascular surgery, growing prostheses, bone grafts, and bone lengthening procedures.

The orthopedic oncology unit is the main hospital building and consists of 2 outpatient clinic rooms, one operating theatre room, and 6 inpatient beds. The staff includes a group of university staff members, registrars, and specialized nurses who work harmoniously to provide patients with the best care possible.
