I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the treatment of children and young adults with bone and muscle cancers. We treat these cancers using a multidisciplinary approach that involves the collective expertise of pediatric oncologists, bone marrow transplant physicians, orthopedic and general pediatric surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, chemotherapy pharmacists, and specialized nurses. We treat these cancers with a combination of therapeutic approaches that are specific to each patient’s individual situation. We participate in Children’s Oncology Group (COG) studies and offer these treatment approaches to all patients. Our group is part of the musculoskeletal tumor program within the NCI-designated Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa Health System. This relationship allows us to offer early-stage clinical trials of promising novel agents with the idea of providing the best possible care for every child with bone and muscle cancers.
