    Personal Statement

    As an orthopaedic oncologist, I get to treat patients of every age. I operate on every bone in the body so I get many different surgeries, and it's made me a better surgeon. I treat many different types of cancers, including tumors that have started outside the bone and tumors that have spread inside the bone.

    I help people by performing reconstructive surgery. We often help patients who have periprosthetic fractures with tumor-style prosthesis. Additionally, we are able to use many surgical techniques to help patients who don’t have cancer.

    Patients who previously had no options for their hip or knee have options now. We can replace entire bones, including the femur, the biggest bone in the body. We can provide a cancer-style prosthesis that we connect with a knee replacement and a hip replacement and provide patients a new leg to walk on.

    This bone dr.s. appt. went very well. I saw *Dr. O'Donnell 7 years ago and he waited to do a hip replacement, I avoided it until now. I feel he would do an excellent job on my hip.
