Your treatment will be managed by our specialist centre with outstanding experience in treating cancer, where you’ll be cared for by a team of different healthcare professionals known as a multi-disciplinary team (MDT).

Members of the MDT will include an orthopaedic surgeon (a surgeon who specialises in the treatment of cancer), a clinical oncologist (a specialist in the non-surgical treatment of cancer) and a specialist cancer nurse, among others.

Your MDT will recommend what they think is the best treatment for you, but the final decision will be yours.

Our recommended treatment plan may include a combination of:

  • chemotherapy – treatment with powerful cancer-killing medication
  • radiotherapy – where radiation is used to destroy cancerous cells
