Daniel C. Allison MD, FACS, and his team base their treatment philosophy on caring for patients like family. If you have an advanced orthopedic condition, ranging from a bone or soft tissue tumor to a complex degenerative joint disorder to extensive skeletal trauma to a severe orthopedic complication, an experienced surgical team with training and expertise in advanced musculoskeletal reconstruction can make all the difference. Because of the relative rarity of these conditions, there are a limited number of surgeons like Dr. Allison in the country.
We provide advanced orthopedic procedures for musculoskeletal tumors, including Soft Tissue and Bone Sarcomas and Metaststatic Bone Disease, as well as benign bone and soft tissue growths. Some of the cancers that we treat most often are osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, chondrosarcoma, and soft tissue sarcomas, which require comprehensive, multidisciplinary care, including surgical treatment from an expert with specialized oncologic training, like Dr. Allison.
We provide specialized procedures to remove tumors and reconstruct bones, joints, and soft tissues to help eliminate disease and restore function, using minimally invasive and advanced surgical techniques. These techniques can also readily reconstruct bone and joint structures damaged by non-tumor conditions like arthritis, fractures, trauma, avascular necrosis, infection, and other severe destructive and degenerative disorders.
Only an orthopedic oncologist like Dr. Daniel C. Allison has the unique knowledge and training necessary to safely treat and remove musculoskeletal tumors and then effectively reconstruct the residual bone, joint, and soft tissue in order to cure disease and restore mobility and function.
Dr. Allison can evaluate, diagnose, and treat virtually any bone or soft tissue tumor of the musculoskeletal system. These disorders can be complex and often require an orthopedic oncologist for the best possible treatment.
The problem of major joint degeneration can but further compounded by bone loss, scarring, and soft tissue compromise, especially when the hip, knee, or shoulder are involved, and their reconstruction or repair can pose a major challenge. When the degenerative condition is less complex (as with standard arthritis) but still requires surgical treatment, it is important to perform the reconstruction in the safest and least invasive means possible.
Dr. Daniel C. Allison’s extensive experience in advanced orthopedic reconstructive procedures has given him the expertise to handle even the most complex joint disorders with relative ease.
People of all ages are vulnerable to fractures of the bones after injury, which often require rapid and precise treatment in order to optimize outcome. The most common reasons for critical fractures today include motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls. Sometimes, even with the appropriate initial management, these fractures may not heal appropriately.
Dr. Daniel C Allison’s extensive training at the Los Angeles County + USC Level I Trauma Center in addition to his extensive experience in treating destructive bone tumors and reconstructing critical joints gives him the ability to fix even the most extensive acute fracture, to repair fractures that have not healed appropriately, or to handle virtually any trauma-related orthopedic complication.
Dr. Daniel C. Allison is the ideal physician to coordinate the multifaceted and multi-disciplinary treatment unique to the areas of musculoskeletal tumors, advanced joint reconstruction, extensive skeletal trauma, and severe orthopedic complications. He is board-certified in orthopedic surgery with fellowship training and extensive expertise in musculoskeletal oncology, complex joint reconstruction, and fracture treatment. Dr. Allison is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS). He is also a member of the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS), the Orthopedic Trauma Association (OTA), the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons (SOMOS), and the American Orthopedic Association (AOA). He has authored numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, has designed several well-received, cutting edge orthopedic implants and systems, and has been invited to lecture at academic institutions across the world on his expertise.
Many surgeons have little experience with orthopedic oncology and complex bone and joint disorders because of their complexity. However, Dr. Allison is among the world's most highly trained and experienced specialists treating complex orthopedic conditions and tumors affecting musculoskeletal systems. He has significant experience with pelvic and extremity tumors and an intimate knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and function that is essential to treating growths and other destructive conditions in these areas.
A coordinated, dedicated, multi-disciplinary team lead by a specialist like Dr. Allison offers the extensive resources, experience, and dedication necessary to optimize outcome in these difficult musculoskeletal conditions.
