The Orthopaedic Oncology service is responsible for the diagnosing and treatment of both benign and malignant tumors that occur in a variety of places in the human body. Our expertise lies in the treatment of tumors occurring in the arms, legs, or pelvis of a patient. Furthermore, our division is part of a much larger multi-disciplinary team that includes other surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pediatric oncologists, and interventional radiologists. Our efforts are coordinated to bring the best possible care to our patients from every conceivable angle.
