Please note that this doctor’s office has recently moved. All patient appointments are now taking place at the Rockefeller Outpatient Pavilion at 160 East 53rd Street in Manhattan.

I am an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in treating primary bone cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, and metastatic cancer that has spread to the bone. I also have expertise in treating non-cancerous bone and soft tissue tumors. I see patients at Memorial Hospital and the 60th Street Outpatient Center.

Cancer is often overwhelming and scary. I consider it an honor to help people and their family members through difficult times. As a cancer specialist, I spend a lot of time with patients, which enables me to develop strong relationships. Helping them get well and back to their lives makes everything worth it.

I have special expertise in preserving limb function after bone cancer surgery. Many people with bone cancer are concerned about functional recovery, and I believe in doing everything possible to help them maintain their mobility.

Advances in chemotherapy and immunotherapy are allowing people to live longer than before, so we are searching for more durable treatments that are individually tailored for each person. I have found that patient goals can vary and aren’t always what we expect, so discussing them up front is very helpful.

After an office visit with me, I want patients to feel that their concerns and wishes have been heard. I also strive for them to be confident in the treatment plan that we have designed.

In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family, exercise, and outdoor activities.

Many people with bone cancer are concerned about functional recovery, and I believe in doing everything possible to help them maintain their mobility.

-Dr. Bartelstein
