Orthopaedic Oncology (Orange)

This rotation is supervised by our chairman, Robert Quinn, MD. Each PGY 4 and PGY 1 resident spends two months on the Orthopaedic Oncology service which provides a truly comprehensive exposure to benign and malignant soft tissue and bony tumors. Residents on this rotation attend a combined orthopaedic/radiology conference as well as a combined orthopaedic/pathology conference on a weekly basis. Although many of the surgical procedures are intricate and complex, the faculty emphasize basic diagnosis and management of soft tissue tumors from a general orthopaedic surgery standpoint. Residents are instructed on basic techniques for incisional and excisional biopsy and the principles of amputations and limb salvage. The resident has no night call responsibilities while on the Orthopaedic Orange Service.
