The article offers information on metastatic bone disease, including its diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. Metastatic bone disease is considered as one of the major health-care issues worldwide. Orthopaedic surgeons are the practitioners who specialized in the identifying musculoskeletal pain. It can be evaluated through positron emission tomography and can be treated through surgical management, including postoperative radiation and radiofrequency ablation.
