The primary goals of multimodal, interdisciplinary treatment of bone metastases are to achieve mobility, pain relief, and improve quality of life. In cooperation with radiotherapists and oncologists, an individual therapy plan has to be designed. As bone metastases are a sign of a systemic spread of the disease, cure is not possible in nearly all cases. A singular bone metastasis of a renal cell carcinoma may be regarded as an exemption, where wide resection might cure the patient. The extent of the operation should be based on the 3S principle "save, short & simple". The prognosis of survival should influence the treatment regime. If it is unclear whether a bone metastasis or a primary bone tumor is present, a biopsy is required.
