OSTEOSARCOMA
My grandchild (4 years old) has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (Grade 2b) of the femur. She is currently undergoing four sessions of chemo and thereafter goes to the Vincent Pallotti hospital for a vascularised fibula transfer.

Does this hospital and the doctors who perform this operation have a good reputation and is this the best option
