Division of Orthopedic Oncology
The Division of Orthopedic Oncology provides multidisciplinary care for both children and adults with primary bone and soft tissue tumors and metastatic disease through the Orthopedic Oncology Service at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Our treatment plans include operative and nonoperative treatments of all benign bone and soft tissue tumors, resection and reconstruction of bone and soft tissue sarcomas, operative and nonoperative management of metastatic disease, and limb-sparing surgery.
Our treatment plans are coordinated through a multidisciplinary team that includes orthopedic oncology surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, pathologists, and musculoskeletal radiologists. Specialists in our division are part of Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, a National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. This distinction recognizes our leadership in ongoing clinical research trials and our commitment to the overall care of our patients.
Our division plays an integral role in the education of medical students and residents at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine and the department overall. Medical students wishing to explore orthopedic surgery may enroll in electives with our division as part of NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine’s MD curriculum. We also offer an opportunity for interested visiting medical students to participate in an orthopedic surgery away rotation.
