WUSA-9 Covers Story of Young Boy Who Received Rare Tumor Removal Surgery at Children's
November 27, 2015
Brayden Schofield was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma at age 5. Brayden's case was unique in that his tumor ran down most of his humerus, so physicians at Children's National decided to reconstruct his arm using his fibula. What's rare about this surgery is that the surgeons included the head of the bone with the growth plate. Holly Meany, MD, Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, as well as Robert Henshaw, MD, and Gary Rogers, MD, Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care, were interviewed for this story.
