Care Philosophy

An Orthopedic Oncologist deals with the diagnosis, surgical treatment, follow-up and coordination of care for patients with primary and secondary benign and malignant cancers of bone and soft tissues of the pelvis and extremities. Primary soft tissue cancers are referred to as soft tissue Sarcomas and are often treated with radiation, possible chemotherapy, and surgical removal with a clear margin of normal tissue. Primary bone cancers are referred to as bone Sarcomas and are often treated with chemotherapy when indicated, and limb-sparing surgical removal including bone and a margin of normal tissue, and reconstruction often using a metal bone and joint replacement implant. Secondary cancer of the bone is often due to metastases from other types of cancer such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer etc. These metastases can be very painful and cause the bone to break. The goal of surgery is to reconstruct the bone and return the patient to a pain-free higher level of function and improved quality of life.
