Generations of excellence in caring for childhood bone cancers: Dr. Gebhardt and Dr. Anderson

My career path to orthopedic tumor surgery started with early exposure to orthopedics 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 I can be a part of their battle in some way.
