About Dr. Monson

Dr. Monson and his partners have the only multipdisciplinary musculosekeletal oncology service in Georgia that serves both children and adults. His focus is on rare tumors, sarcomas of the bone (2,500 cases a year in the U.S.) and soft tissue (10,000 cases a year in the U.S.) as well as other uncommon benign bone and soft tissue tumors. He also treats metastatic disease to the bone from other primary malignancies and often performs complex reconstructive procedures for these disorders not available in the community. The efforts of his practice also extend to complex skeletal reconstructions that may arise from failed orthopaedic procedures performed elsewhere.

He is only one of two fellowship-trained orthopaedic oncologists in the state of Georgia (the other is his partner, Dr. Shervin V. Oskouei, MD) that concentrates his practice within his subspecialty. He also performs total hip and total knee replacements, specifically more difficult primary replacements or revisions that may require the skills developed within his practice of musculoskeletal oncology.
