Department and Faculty
The Division of Orthopedic Oncology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, sees a large number of patients each year with diverse surgical needs. Orthopedic oncologists have extensive experience treating tumors such as Ewing's sarcoma, osteosarcoma and other malignancies that involve the musculoskeletal system.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to the orthopedic oncology faculty at Mayo Clinic throughout the Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship.
