The Montefiore Approach

The Orthopedic Oncology program at Montefiore is one the most comprehensive of its kind in the region. Together with the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care and its research partner, the Albert Einstein Cancer Center, our knowledge and expertise ensure the highest quality of care for even the most complicated cases.

Our team of specialists is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of tumors, both benign and malignant, primary and secondary. Through the coordinated efforts of our medical and surgical subspecialists, we provide thorough multidisciplinary care for all of our patients.

As an academic medical center, we are constantly striving for innovations in tumor treatment. Our participation in basic, translational and clinical research allows us to explore exciting new methods for the advancement of care within our own health system and beyond.

The experience of our patients and their loved ones—not simply their ailments—demands our full attention. Your dedicated care team will be there to discuss your condition, answer questions, assess treatment options and develop a treatment strategy that is best for you.

Bone and soft-tissue tumors present unique challenges. At Montefiore, we believe that optimal outcomes are the product of thorough evaluations, accurate diagnoses and intelligent, patient-specific treatment plans developed through years of clinical experience.

Working as a team, we create comprehensive care plans for every patient. A collaborative strategy helps to remove traditional boundaries between specialists and minimizes the number of patient visits. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures clear communication between clinicians and allows for the simplified coordination of diagnostic studies, treatments and follow-up visits.

Every week, specialists meet to discuss diagnoses and treatment plans for our patients. Imaging studies, test results, biopsy findings and relevant patient information are all reviewed and taken into consideration. From there, individualized treatment strategies are designed using evidence-based medicine, national guidelines, ongoing clinical trials and the group’s combined clinical expertise.

Our status as an academic medical center puts us at the forefront of our field. Together with our Albert Einstein College of Medicine, one of the highest NIH-funded institutions in the country, we work toward excellence in orthopedic study and care. We continually participate in advancing cancer treatment through translational and clinical research. By participating in national and international clinical trials, we are able to help discover better treatment options for our patients. We routinely present our research findings in national and international conferences and publish our study results in numerous peer-reviewed publications.
