Richard Terek, M.D.

Adult Reconstructive Surgery and Musculoskeletal Oncology
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery
Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

Specialties:

Richard M. Terek, M.D., a specialist in adult reconstructive surgery and musculoskeletal oncology, is an attending orthopedic surgeon at the Miriam and Rhode Island Hospitals.

Dr. Terek performs hip and knee replacements for patients with arthritis at the Total Joint Center at The Miriam Hospital.

Dr. Terek is also an expert in the treatment of patients with osteogenic sarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, chondrosarcoma, soft-tissue sarcoma, metastatic cancer (cancers such as breast, prostate or lung which have spread to the bones), and benign bone and soft tissue tumors. These tumors occur in both children and adults. Treatment usually includes removing the tumor and limb or pelvis reconstruction is performed with combinations of artificial joints and bone grafts. Experts in pediatric, adult, and radiation oncology work with Dr. Terek at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital as part of a multidisciplinary team to cure patients.

Dr. Terek is actively involved with teaching medical students at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and is Director of the Orthopaedic Oncology Laboratory.
