Providing expert care to patients with a wide variety of bone and soft tissue tumors and tumor-like conditions remains the professional focus of Richard J. O’Donnell, M.D., who serves as Chief of the UCSF Orthopaedic Oncology. Clinical research is directed towards osseointegration as a means of achieving stable endoprosthetic reconstruction for limb salvage patients and transdermal anchorage for amputee patients. Multidisciplinary approaches to management of soft tissue sarcoma patients are also an area of active interest. Educational efforts include teaching of orthopaedic surgical residents and medical students, as well as direction of international conferences.
After receiving undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard, Dr. O’Donnell completed a general surgery internship at the New England Deaconess Hospital. He was graduated from the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Residency Training Program in Boston and the Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship Program at the University of Washington in Seattle. He joined the UCSF Medical Center Faculty in 1998.
