A Randomized Trial to Assess Patient Quality of Life and Function After Alternative Surgeries for Pathologic Fractures of the Femur

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
The purpose of this study is to look at two different types of surgeries regularly used for treating cancer that has spread to and weakened the thigh bone (femur). Because it is not known which of these surgeries is best, the investigators will compare the results of the two procedures. They are looking to see if differences exist (after surgery) in function, quality of life, pain control, and possible complications.
