Dr. Ernest “Chappie” Conrad III earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine at Charlottesville, Va. He completed his internship at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, N.Y., and his residency in orthopedic surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery Sloan-Kettering Memorial Hospital Cornell Medical Center at New York, N.Y. Following his residency, he completed a fellowship in orthopedic oncology at the University of Florida Pediatric Orthopedic Hospital at the College of Medicine at Gainesville, Fla., and completed an additional fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at the Hospital for Sick Children, which is affiliated with the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Conrad was one of the first orthopedic surgeons to be trained in both Oncology and Pediatric Orthopedics.

Board certified in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Conrad treats sarcomas in adults and children. For over 30 years, he has not only been treating patients for a variety of issues including sarcoma, pediatric bone tumors and adult musculoskeletal tumors, but also he has been paving the way and setting world-recognized standards in assessing risk and response in patients suffering from sarcoma. He established one of the first multidisciplinary sarcoma clinics in the US and pioneered the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to treat sarcoma patients with limb salvage surgery. His research interests include GPS surgical tumor mapping and improving limb salvage.

Serving patients ages 1-99, Dr. Conrad is fluent in English, Dutch and French. His patients value his expertise and appreciate his availability and personal commitment to their care. Through direct, personalized communication and a wealth of knowledge and experience, Dr. Conrad provides high-quality surgical treatment and management of musculoskeletal tumors.

Dr. Conrad has been honored with multiple awards and recognition throughout his career, including the Hospital for Special Surgery Distinguished Alumnus Award, being named director and founder of the Sarcoma Cancer Care service at the University of Washington and Seattle Children's Hospital, serving as founder of the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation in Seattle, Wash., and co-investigator in a National Institute of Health (NIH) Program Project Grant from 2001 to 2010. He served as chairman of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery at Seattle Children’s Hospital and chairman of the Board for the “SARC” nonprofit consortium.

In his spare time, Dr. Conrad enjoys relaxing on the coast and traveling to Amsterdam. A Museum District resident, he loves spending time with his wife of 40 years and their three adult children.
