Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With the increasing reliance of patients on the Internet for medical information, accessible and comprehensive resources are important. We retrieved orthopaedic oncology information sites for patients and professionals from three search engines. We evaluated 70 sites with two raters, plus an additional nine sites suggested by Musculoskeletal Tumor Society members. Only five patient sites and seven provider sites met our inclusion criteria. Of these, only one of each was peer-reviewed. In contrast to other disease states such as melanoma or bladder cancer, there are relatively few orthopaedic oncology sites available on the Web.
