Richard Terek, MD, is a musculoskeletal oncologist, caring for patients with tumors in the arms, legs, pelvis or spine, and an associate professor of orthopedics at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Tumor surgery and reconstructive surgery involve removing the tumor or arthritic joint, and restoring what is removed. Reconstruction is performed with combinations of artificial joints, bone transplants and muscle transfers. Terek is an expert in the treatment of patients with osteogenic sarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, soft-tissue sarcoma, and metastatic cancer (cancers such as breast, prostate or lung which have spread to the bones) in both children and adults.
Terek received his medical degree from the University of Chicago medical school, and trained at Loyola University Medical Center and Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
