Rochester, Minnesota Clinical Profile


My area of expertise involves treating patients with tumors in the spine, chest wall, pelvis and extremities. The majority of patients require a multidisciplinary approach to health care. Our team works with other investigators to examine and refine best surgical oncology practices. Specific areas of investigation include:
  • Sacrectomies, hemipelvectomies, and spinopelvic resections for advanced malignancies
  • Outcomes of treatment for primary bone and soft tissue sarcomas
  • Treatment of metastatic epidural spinal cord compression
