Tuberculosis (TB) of bone is treatable and curable, either with medicine alone or medicine plus surgery. TB of bone is relatively rare. The best suggestion I can give is that your doctor consult the TB doctors at National Jewish Health, formerly National Jewish Medical and Research Center, in Denver, Colorado. These are experts with experience in the treatment of every imaginable form of tuberculosis. They should be able to answer all questions regarding both diagnosis and treatment. Two doctors of note are Michael Iseman, MD and Gwen Huitt, MD. Your doctor can access the Mycobacterial Diseases Consult Service by copying and pasting this address
into the address window of his/her internet browser. Here they will find a link for the mycobacterial consultation form, at the top of the form select consultation only, complete the form with as much detail as possible, then submit.
