Thad Dean, MD
Dr. Thad Dean specializes in Joint Replacement, Complex Joint Revision and the very rare subspecialization of Orthopedic Oncology, including tumors of the bones, joints, and muscles. In 2018, Dr. Dean was recognized by the American Cancer Society as the Distinguished Medical Provider of Tarrant County. Orthopedic Oncology is the subdivision of orthopedics that cares for children and adults diagnosed with tumors, and tumor-like conditions of the bone and soft tissue. This includes bone metastases, sarcomas, benign and cancerous tumors of the bone or soft tissue, and pathologic fracture. A pathologic fracture is a fracture that occurs in the bone due to a disease rather than an injury.
