Biography

Specializing in the evaluation, diagnosis, and surgical management of sarcomas, tumors arising in bone and soft-tissue, Dr. Jones sees both pediatric and adult patients. His practice also includes surgery for benign bone tumors such as giant cell tumor of bone, chondromyxoid fibroma, osteochondromas, and others as well as stabilization of the bones with metastatic disease from other cancers causing pathologic fractures or impending fractures. Children and adults in need of resection and reconstruction, (often termed limb-salvage surgery) for osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, chondrosarcoma, synovial sarcoma, liposarcoma, and leiomyosarcoma of the extremities and pelvis come from all across the mountain west to see Dr. Jones and the multidisciplinary team approach used by Sarcoma Services at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Weekly meetings bring together surgeons, chemotherapy specialists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and other providers to discuss every new case of sarcoma. Dr. Jones emphasizes clear communication and educates and empowers patients to make wise choices with regard to their cancer care. He studied English literature at Harvard and received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University. After orthopaedic residency training at the University of Iowa, he specialized in musculoskeletal oncology through fellowship training at the University of Toronto, Mount Sinai and Princess Margaret Hospitals.
