Bone Tumor

The Bone Tumor Center was established in 1989 and is one of the earliest bone tumor diagnosis and treatment centers in the country. Now the Center receives more than 2,000 cases of bone tumors and other difficult diseases every year. Trained by Professor Yang Disheng and led by Professor Ye Zhaoming, Vice Chair Tao Huimin and Vice Chair Lin Nong, the Bone Cancer Team was among the first to carry out limb salvage treatment of bone and soft tissue tumors in China, especially in the resection and reconstruction of pelvic tumors, resection and reconstruction of spinal and sacral tumors. Besides, we are one of the first in China to carry out high-temperature isolation limb perfusion chemotherapy, upper femur reconstruction of bone and joint defects after pelvic tumor resection, reverse shoulder prosthesis treatment of proximal humerus tumors and other difficult surgeries, 3D printing prosthesis reconstruction of bone defects after tumor resection, multiple Segmental total vertebral resection and reconstruction, osteotomy and orthopedics using DHS as a template to treat fibrous dysplasia and coxa varus deformity, osteoid osteoma drill and curettage under O-arm machine navigation, and "domino method" to treat tumor after prosthesis surgery. 

Trauma Surgery
Rich experience in treating fractures of the pelvis, acetabulum, limbs and hands, especially complicated cases. Recent years, minimally invasive surgery for treating bone fractures was introduced. Techniques of open bone grafting and bone transportation for treating refractory osteomyelitis and nonunion are also used here. With our efforts, most patients keep their limbs in spite of their destructive injuries. Brachial plexus injuries, peripheral nerves injuries, severe injury of fingers and limbs can also be replanted proficiently. Our techniques and services stand at the top level domestically. 3 chief physicians in the division are committed to providing the best care for patients.

Spinal Surgery
This division is accomplished in treating various spinal diseases. Our experts have cured a large number of patients who suffered from spondylosis, scoliosis, spinal fracture and dislocation and spinal tuberculosis with the advanced theory and practice. A variety of complicated procedures have become routine operations, such as anterior cervical decompression and fixation, posterior open-door laminoplasty of cervical spine, lumbar disc neuclectomy, decompression and fusion of lumbar spinal stenosis, correction of scoliosis and kyphosis, correction of complex spinal deformity and percutaneous vertebroplasty. Until now the experts’ skills are so superb that they have made breakthrough in some previously forbidden areas. The entire spine could be accessed if necessary from the occipital bone to the sacral vertebra. Patients have been satisfied with excellent recovery and have returned to work with relatively low expenses. The Division of Spinal Surgery always holds great promise for the patients.

Joint Surgery
Experts in this division are accomplished in arthropathy, especially in complicated arthritis with deformity. The techniques include pelvic osteotomy for congenital hip dysplasia, bone grafting for Ischemic Necrosis of Femoral Head, and artificial joint replacement for end-staged arthritis. There are nearly 800 cases of artificial joint replacement of the hip, knee and shoulder per year, topping the whole nation. Also, minimally invasive surgery such as arthroscopy is commonly adopted for meniscus injury, rupture of anterior collateral ligaments and posterior collateral ligaments and mediopatellar plica syndrome.
Foot and Ankle Surgery
This Division is particularly good at surgical treatment for bunion, flatfeet and complicated equinus deformity, correction of traumatic foot and ankle deformity, reconstruction of old achilles tendon injuries.
