Cancers of the Bone

David Chafey, MD, is an orthopedic surgical oncologist. He helps each multidisciplinary team decide how best to treat cancers that start in bone or that spread to bone. Based on the size and location of the tumor, he can help each team to help their patients keep their limbs. He also studies reconstructive surgery to prevent fractures and keep limbs functioning.

“Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we are able to perform limb salvage surgery and still prolong a person’s life. In the past, people would have to make difficult choices between life and preserving a limb.”
