When you hear the words "Your child has cancer" you lose your mind. Dr Chappie Conrad saved my 9 year old daughter's leg. She was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma and we seeked opinions from surgeons all over the country who's opinions varied from amputation to doing nothing, just "watch and wait." Dr Chappie texted me after hearing about my daughter's complicated case and when we saw him the very first time I knew he was the one to save not only her life but her leg as well. He is the BEST.

Dr. Conrad has operated and removed benign tumors on my daughters leg on two occasions and I am so pleased that he was the surgeon. He is very courteous and patient with her questions and takes them seriously. He is wonderful, amazing and excellent at what he does. I'm glad he's on our team for our daughter's healthcare. We couldn't be happier with him and his staff. Truly amazing A+ folks.
