Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Program

Bone and soft tissue tumors are complex and can be difficult to diagnose. There are also many treatment options available, and some children will need a combination of these therapies. Whether your child has a benign tumor or malignant tumor (also called a sarcoma), or you’re seeking a second opinion after a recent diagnosis, the experts at the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) will provide your family with personalized care.

Our team approach to treatment means specialists from several areas collaborate in the care of each and every patient to provide your family with the best possible outcome. Both the Division of Orthopaedics and the Cancer Center at CHOP are ranked No. 1 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, and our program brings together these top-ranked specialists to provide the best possible coordinated care for your child.
