Bone Sarcomas: Bone Sarcomas or Soft tissue sarcomas are removed by limb-sparing surgery where in the tumor, lymph nodes or tissues are removed. A 1 inch healthy tissue is also removed on all side of the tumor to further decrease the chances recurrence

Bone Tumor: To fully remove the malignant lesion and a part of normal tissue to further reduce the risk of low-grade tumors of bone, is the main priority of the surgeon. During the surgery, muscle, bone and other tissues affected by the tumor is also removed.

Radiation or chemotherapy may be advised post operation. The limb salvage procedure is conducted after the removal of the tumor and progress of the affected area.
