Abstract

in English, Hungarian

The incidence of bone tumors is low therefore it is highly recommended to treat patients in specialized centers. In the late 70ies a bone tumor registry was initiated at the Department of Orthopedics of the Semmelweis University followed by the development of a specialized diagnostic unit and a bone cancer center. Several novel surgical procedures have been introduced, including the extremity-sparing surgery, leading to a significant improvement of the patients survival. This is fully supported by a specialized bone cancer oncoteam of experts. The 6000-sized registry and biobank now allows the development of translational research in this orphan tumor type.
