Intrapelvic and extrapelvic sciatic notch dumbbell tumors (SNDTs) are rare soft-tissue tumors that are difficult to remove. This study aimed to report the surgical technique and evaluate the clinical findings of SNDTs. We performed a retrospective review of the clinical outcomes and primary features of two consecutive cases of SNDTs. Both patients with SNDTs had different clinical presentations and prognoses and underwent surgeries with the same technique. We performed complete surgical resection of the tumor in one patient with greater trochanteric osteotomy and pelvic osteotomy in both patients. We achieved satisfactory results in both cases by implementing the utilitarian approach and pelvic osteotomy through the greater sciatic notch to surgically resect the tumors. This technique was chosen to provide a maximum benefit to the patients.
