Musculoskeletal Tumors

The Dallas Ft. Worth Sarcoma Group is committed to providing exceptional care for patients with musculoskeletal tumors, metastatic bone disease, and osteomyelitis. Our multidisciplinary approach to patient care ensures a personal, state of-the-art treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. Through the Dallas Ft. Worth Sarcoma Foundation, we are actively involved in the research of novel strategies to treat musculoskeletal disease by thorough evaluation in a multidisciplinary setting. Current therapeutic strategies are shared amongst radiologists, oncologists, internists, orthopedists, infectious disease specialists, and plastic surgeons. As a result of this unique, team effort approach, each patient's care plan is reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis. Due to this comprehensive and unified approach, many of our patients go on to lead disease-free lives.

Osteomyelitis Infection

Osteomyelitis, or bone infection, may occur spontaneously or following an orthopaedic procedure. Treatment of osteomyelitis is complex, usually requiring a specific antibiotic regimen and often necessitating surgery for removal of any infected bone or soft tissue. Through our multidisciplinary approach, we have been able to eliminate infections in many patients, while at the same time avoiding the need for amputation, thus promising them a much brighter future. Dr. Maale's special interest in biofilm contributes to these more positive outcomes for our osteomyelitis patients.

We would be happy to discuss any of these subjects with referring physicians or patients by phone at (214) 691-9777 ext. 200.
