Suggest Remedy For Giant Cell Tumour

I am from India and I would like to treat My wife's sister. She is suffering Giant Cell Tumour on her left thigh. She has been already treated and operated twice in Mumbai within last three years and still she got swelling while Doctors here are again telling her for third surgery just after the 6 months from her last surgery. We have researched the things personally and found that they used old types of techniques and technology while today it is recommended to do radical intralesional curettage with a high-speed drill burr, adjunctive therapy with cryosurgery, and filling with polymethylmethacrylate.Can anynoe guide me on this that where and who can do this latest kind of surgery in India ?Thanks in advance.

Hi! thanks for your query and feedback on the treatment options for giant cell tumor of bone...!

I must agree with you that ' radical intralesional curettage with a high-speed drill burr, adjunctive therapy with cryosurgery, and filling with polymethylmethacrylate' is the latest and mostly recommended treatment option for such cases and practised widely but sorry that was not done in your sister's case! There might be some reason (s) for this that her doctors might be knowing...

I must suggest you to take her to PGIMER, Chandigarh or AIIMS, Delhi for this!

regards,
