The authors present a study realized between 1953 and 1995 at A.C. Camargo Hospital, in Sao Paulo, with 149 patients with chondrosarcoma; 93 were male and 56, female; 85.9% were patients above 20 years old; 48.7% of the surgery indications were ablative and 51.3%, preservative. Since 1988, with establishment of new protocols and multidisciplinary approach, there was an improvement on survival, that was about 26.7% on the first 3 decades, and now reaching rates about 58.7%. Thanks to our pioneer surgeons, in the first 3 decades, we had conditions to develop and improve the knowledge about this disease that has its basis on the surgical treatment.
