abstract

  • Although a multimodality approach to the treatment of patients with metastatic disease to bone combining appropriate surgical intervention with systemic therapy and radiation can entail a major operative procedure, the overall benefits to a patient's quality of life outweigh the risks in most cases. Clinician awareness of the various therapeutic options and their indications, and aggressive advocacy of quality of life for these patients, can improve the care delivered to people with metastatic disease.
