Why I am teaching at MCW

After training at different centers around the country, I believe that the Medical College of Wisconsin has one of the best collegial relationships in the nation. As an orthopaedic oncologist I enjoy working closely with a great team of radiologists, general surgeons, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, nurses and other support personnel to provide the patient with the finest care possible.
