A surgical oncologist deals with all aspects of cancer from diagnosis to therapy, follow-up, palliative care, and screening. Practiced by some of the most devoted and perseverant medical professionals, surgical oncology is a strenuous and highly demanding profession that involves a multidisciplinary approach as well as an incredibly strong character. Surgical oncologists typically require at least 8 years of post doctoral training prior to establishing their practice. Despite the devastating features of cancer, surgical oncologists continue to fight this terrible and multi-faceted illness employing state-of-the-art technology and outstanding medical abilities. Trained to fight many times an already lost battle, those who choose surgical oncology as a career are endowed with unique medical and personal traits.

An Orthopedic Oncologist deals with the diagnosis, surgical treatment, follow-up and coordination of care for patients with primary and secondary benign and malignant cancers of bone and soft tissues of the pelvis and extremities. Primary soft tissue cancers are referred to as soft tissue Sarcomas and are often treated with radiation, possible chemotherapy, and surgical removal with a clear margin of normal tissue. Primary bone cancers are referred to as bone Sarcomas and are often treated with chemotherapy when indicated, and limb-sparing surgical removal including bone and a margin of normal tissue, and reconstruction often using a metal bone and joint replacement implant. Secondary cancer of the bone is often due to metastases from other types of cancer such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer etc. These metastases can be very painful and cause the bone to break. The goal of surgery is to reconstruct the bone and return the patient to a pain-free higher level of function and improved quality of life.

Straight From The Patients
Dr. Deheshi did a Intra Mullary Rod/Nail operation on my wife. Dr. Ben Deheshi is truly a great man, amazing doctor and very caring. He is the kind of doctor that takes the time to make sure you are comfortable with what he is doing during the operation. He informs everyone of what is best to take care of you post operation. He knew exactly what to do. He kept me informed through the whole process through his Nurse P.A.. He is extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. I/We would not hesitate to contact Dr. Deheshi for any future operation needs.
