Clinical and/or Scientific interests

I am an orthopaedic surgeon dedicated to the treatment of children and adults who have bone or soft tissue tumors located in the extremities, pelvis, and sacrum. My clinical practice includes management of benign and malignant musculoskeletal tumors. My research involves understanding the molecular biology and the genetic profile of sarcomas and improving the durability and function of oncologic reconstructions, using new technology such as 3D printed guide surgery and navigation surgery.
