Emily E. Carmody, M.D.View Contact & Scheduling
I find surgical oncology and joint revision surgery a challenging but invigorating field. Each operation is different, as no two patients or their reconstructive challenges are alike. I have the opportunity to treat patients of all ages and to operate on different areas of the anatomy. Most important, I am able to make a true difference in my patients' lives by helping them overcome their disease, while maintaining mobility and function.
Cancer patients require a multidisciplinary approach to care. I treat each patient with compassion and understanding – and try my best to involve patients and their families in the decision-making process, as much as possible. Along with medicine, I believe strongly in yoga, meditation, and reiki as ways to complement our medical treatment of our patients. I obtained my Reiki Master Certification in 2016.
Conditions I Treat
- Bone and soft tissue sarcomas
- Metastatic carcinoma to the bone
- Avascular necrosis

Ratings & Reviews
At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
