About Me

My professional mission is to provide education, treatment and support to patients and families, empowering them to take control of their medical care. The patient who finds his or her way into my office has been unexpectedly thrust down an unfamiliar road. Where two weeks prior they were walking the dog, engaged at work or planning the next family vacation, today they find themselves bouncing between doctor visits, MRIs or blood draws. In these difficult circumstances, how do people regain a sense of control? They do so by understanding their diagnosis, preparing for and overcoming inevitable challenges, and having an actionable plan moving forward. Although I take a leading role, this process is not performed in a vacuum. Close coordination with medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and radiation oncologists ensures access to as many experts and treatment avenues as are available.

As a specialist in musculoskeletal oncology and reconstructive surgery, I am an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer involving the bones and soft tissues in patients of all ages – from infants to octogenarians. I see patients with sarcoma, bone cancer, benign bone tumors, benign soft tissue tumors and multiple myeloma. I also treat patients with metastatic cancers that attack bone such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer and thyroid cancer. Among the many types of procedures I perform, I am experienced in radical resections of sarcoma, limb salvage, joint reconstruction, rotationplasty and various treatment modalities for metastatic bone cancer. In addition to surgical procedures for cancer, I also perform hip and knee replacements in otherwise healthy patients with arthritis and other conditions affecting their mobility and quality of life.
