For orthopedic surgeon and oncologist Dr. Matthew Seidel, the patient-centered approach taken at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Phoenix, provides an ideal environment for providing the best treatment. “The Patient-Empowered Care model allows me to spend a great deal of time with my patients and really get to know them personally,” says Dr. Seidel, “which leads to a better and deeper understanding of their disease.”
Dr. Seidel obtained a bachelor of science degree in chemistry at the University of Arizona, in Tucson, in 1992, and then completed a masters in medicinal chemistry at the University of Toledo, in Ohio, graduating as a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. He then attended Ohio State University College of Medicine, obtaining his medical degree in 1999. During medical school, Dr. Seidel was twice granted the Samuel J. Roessler Research Award, serving as a Roessler Research Fellow, for his research of new anesthetics for cardiac surgery.
He completed an internship at Maricopa Integrated Health System in Phoenix in 2000, followed by a residency in orthopedic surgery with the Phoenix Orthopedic Residency Program at Maricopa Medical Center from 2000 to 2004. He then completed a fellowship in musculoskeletal oncology at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, in 2005.
After completing his medical training, Dr. Seidel became a member of the attending faculty with the Orthopaedic Residency Program at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix and clincal assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. He was in private practice before joining CTCA® in 2012, and currently treats patients in both settings.
Dr. Seidel is board certified in orthopedic surgery through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. In 2008, he was given the Arizona Medical Association Humanitarian Award. He has presented his research on various aspects of orthopedic surgery, including cancer-related procedures, at regional and national meetings, and his research is also published in academic journals.
At CTCA, Dr. Seidel’s care combines access to the most advanced technology with a dedication to treating the whole patient. With a focus on sarcoma surgery, Dr. Seidel also has extensive experience with metastatic bone cancer along with the prevention and treatment of pathologic fractures.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
