Baylor's Complex Joint and Musculoskeletal Tumor Program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disease, including bone and soft tissue cancer.
As a recognized leader in both orthopedics and cancer care, Baylor's Complex Joint and Musculoskeletal Tumor Program offers a wide range of services.
Patients from across the country with serious conditions affecting bones, joints and soft tissue have turned to the program for help saving and/or restoring their quality of life. Treatment plans available through the program are tailored to each individual, but the goal is always the same: pain-free recoveries that restore function, salvage limbs and eliminate the underlying cause of the problem.
Baylor's multidisciplinary, highly specialized complex joint and musculoskeletal cancer care team includes radiologists, oncologists, pathologists, orthopedists, internists, infectious disease specialists, hyperbaric medicine specialists, plastic surgeons and other subspecialists on the medical staff as appropriate.
This team approach–combined with advanced technology and forward-thinking research–provides each patient with proper diagnosis and allows a full breadth treatment options to be explored, implemented, monitored and adjusted on an ongoing basis to help promote a quality outcome.
Infections, tumors and deformities in the bones and joints may mean total joint replacement is the best course of treatment. These surgical cases are often more complicated due to the underlying cause, which may have led to bone or soft tissue loss or other structural deficits in the joint that needs to be replaced.
The Baylor Complex Joint and Musculoskeletal Tumors Program specializes in managing these complicated cases. The program’s multidisciplinary team of specialists understands the disease processes involved in these cases and the techniques necessary to replace or reconstruct diseased joints and prevent future damage or infection. We also have a high success rate when it comes to limb salvage.
In addition, the program focuses on correcting failed total joint replacements of the hips, knees and elbows. Patients who are still in pain after joint replacement or who experience loosening, fracturing, infections and bony structural defects from debris from components of the joint or cancer may want to consider joint revision.
