Message from the Chief

As the Orthopedic Oncology/Sarcoma Chief at Mount Sinai Health System, I lead a team dedicated to providing you and your loved ones with the best possible outcome of treatment. Bone and soft tissue tumors, especially sarcomas, are rare and require the expertise of the entire treatment team. Proficiency is required in both the technical aspects of surgery and in making the judgment about the exact treatment needed. Performing these surgeries requires expert surgeons along with skilled operating room staff, nurses, physical therapists, residents, social workers, and other specialized doctors and support staff who are thoroughly familiar with the equipment needed for surgery and your postoperative care.

As the Mount Sinai Health System orthopedic oncologist, I provide the best possible care to our patients, exploring all treatment options for the highest quality of life. In particular, our limb-sparing surgery allows removal of the tumor while preserving the limb in more than 90 percent of cases. Regularly, I treat soft tissue and bone tumors with surgery and non-operative methods that will give you the best results based on your diagnosis.

Your Mount Sinai health care team has the expertise based on caring for patients with sarcomas and other bone and soft tissue tumors on a regular basis. We are committed to helping you make your transition from surgical and postoperative care to return to your home and your regular life. Our team of specialists is dedicated to your long-term well-being. We are committed to following your ongoing progress over time in order to ensure your optimal outcome.
