Removal of a benign, or noncancerous, tumor by contouring is a major invasive procedure used to treat severe congenital bone abnormalities, like fibrous dysplasia, a condition in which normal bone growth is disrupted by abnormal embedded fibrous tissue, resulting in abnormal shape of the bone and surrounding soft tissues. The provider removes the abnormal tissue by surgically contouring, or reshaping, it.
