Question: What are your specialties?

Answer: I specialize in orthopaedic oncology and metastatic disease.

Q: What do you like best about your job?

A: I enjoy working with a wide variety of patients and their families. I also enjoy teaching residents and medical students the fundamentals of orthopaedic surgery.

Q: What is your role in the doctor-patient relationship?

A: My role as a physician is to present all available options to the patient, both operative and non-operative, for the management of various musculoskeletal conditions, so that the patient can make an informed decision and actively participate in their own health care.

Q: What types of volunteer work and hobbies do you have and how do they make you a better doctor?

A: I enjoy playing volleyball both recreationally and competitively. This gives me a place outside of medicine where I can relieve stress and keep a balance in my life.

Q: Have you been a patient and how does that experience make you a better doctor?

A: I was a patient during medical school, and I understand how difficult it is to recover from surgery while trying to maintain a relatively normal daily routine. Understanding what to expect and having support from family and friends is critical for a successful recovery and transition back to daily activities.

Dr. Cynthia Emory is outstanding in every way. Her competency and care as a surgeon have resulted in a surgical procedure that left me with no noticeable physical restrictions or limitations.
