Philosophy of Care 

My career path to orthopaedic tumor surgery started with early exposure to orthopaedics in general and continued with important role models, subspecialty programs, and positive experiences in my training.  It has been the draw of discovering correct diagnoses, investigating problems, and then often being able to correct them surgically that lead me on this path.  I am forever humbled by the resiliency and tenacity of my patients who face limb- and life-threatening problems and am glad that I can be a part of their battle in some way.

Professional History

After completing my residency at the Cleveland Clinic and fellowship in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Tumor Fellowship Program, I was happy to have been given the opportunity to stay on as staff at Boston Children’s Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  Now in my second decade of practice, I lead the tumor service in Orthopaedic Surgery and have been promoted to Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School.  I care for patients with benign and malignant tumors of bone and soft tissue, am engaged in multiple clinical research projects, and am devoted to resident and fellow education.  Nationally, I am very active in the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society and Children’s Oncology Group, and regionally in the New England Orthopaedic Society.
