Many cancers that begin in organs such as the breast, prostate, lung and kidney can spread to areas of bone, causing patients additional complications, pain and even fractures. If you suffer from bone cancer or soft-tissue tumors, you can trust the combined efforts of Norton Orthopaedic Care and Norton Cancer Institute to provide comprehensive treatment.
With Kentucky 's only orthopaedic oncologist, we are able to evaluate and treat many types of disorders, including benign or malignant musculoskeletal tumors and metastatic lesions. We also manage orthopaedic problems in cancer patients who may require specialized, multidisciplinary care. Such problems include fractures, trauma, arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteoporosis and infections.
