Hetertopic bone

After trauma or joint surgery, some patients can develop painful bone spurs that require surgery. These spurs, or piece of heterotopic bone, can grow back if not treated with radiation afterwards or before surgery. Requiring only a single painless radiation treatment, radiation therapy for heterotopic bone is painless and has a high success rate. Dr. Paryani can work with your orthopedic surgeon to time the treatment appropriately to ensure maximal benefit.
