The spectrum of osseointegrated implant applications in cancer patients is quite varied today. In the future, it will be even wider and more varied, limited only by the ingenuity of practitioners, skills of reconstructive surgeons, biology of the reconstruction, and cost restraint efforts. Today's practitioners are challenged to preserve and enhance the benefits of osseointegrated implants in some of the patients who need them most, the cancer patient. It is done by improving one's own skills by research and by education.
