Orthopedic Oncological Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Oncological Rehabilitation

These are mainly children who have had limb tumors (sarcomas) with functional implications (mobility, use of the hand, limping, pain) as well as body image issues. These issues are not addressed in other settings.

There are also children with skeletal or muscular/neurological system damage caused by oncological treatment for different types of tumors - for example peripheral neuropathy (damage to the nerve function in the limbs) or avascular necrosis (AVN - death of bone tissue, mainly after treatment with steroids - a chronic disease with prolonged pain), GVHD (graft versus host disease).

ALYN has an integrated multi-disciplinary team that provides extended multi-disciplinary follow-up for active disorders, with regards to the functional/walking aspect and the day to day functioning and emotional adjustment. The orthopedic examination at this clinic is conducted by Dr. Sharon Eylon, from ALYN’s orthopedic staff. (קישור לחלון של המרפאה באתר של אלי"ן)

The orthopedic examination at the clinic will help conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the child’s condition and recommend therapeutic intervention according to his/her needs.

Some children only require orthopedic follow-up, which is conducted as part of the clinic visits.
