Extensive Research Description

My cancer related research involves clinical study of patients with malignant and benign bone and soft tissue tumors. My clinical practice is directed nearly full time at the treatment of patients with orthopedic oncologic disease including sarcomas and metastatic disease to bone and as such is rare in the medical field. My clinical investigations include evaluating outcomes for different reconstructive techniques after sarcoma resections, and also for minimally invasive techniques of treating benign bone lesions.
