Nickolas Reimer, M.D. 

Nickolas Reimer, M.D. is an orthopaedic surgeon with advanced subspecialty training in musculoskeletal oncology. His clinical practice focuses on the treatment of bone and soft tissue sarcomas, as well as benign bone and soft tissue tumors, in children and adults. In addition to primary soft tissue and bone tumors, he also treats metastatic disease affecting the musculoskeletal system. Since his practice often requires advanced, unconventional solutions to difficult problems, he also performs complex reconstruction and deformity correction surgery in non-oncologic patients. His research interests include novel biomechanical implant design, radiation therapy for soft tissue sarcomas, and clinical outcome data collection.
