The Tumorsection at Department of Orthopaedics, Aarhus University Hospital is a highly specialized department for diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant bone- and soft tissue tumors.

The department is dedicated to diagnosis,  treatment, research and education in these heterogeneous patients.

 Diagnosis spans from clinical examination to state-of-the art imaging modalities including MRI and PET/CT and utilizes bi-weekly MDT conferences.

Treatment of bone tumors includes curettage to wide excision with reconstruction of bone by resection alloplasty or biological reconstruction in bone tumors. In some cases local surgery is not possible and amputation is prefered.

In soft tissue tumors treatment varies from marginal excision to wide resection with reconstruction of tendons, nerves etc or amputation if adequate margins or functional limb salvage cannot be obtained.

The department has a strong research profile with a population-based database including all sarcoma patients going back to 1979.

The Tumorsection has international collaboration via Scandinavian Sarcoma Group – SSG – with annual meetings and a web based forum where difficult patient cases are presented and commented on by colleagues giving valuable advice regarding diagnosis and treatment.
