Kevin Bruce Jones, MD
Instructor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Kevin B. Jones, MD, an instructor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Utah, specializes in the surgical management of various soft-tissue and bone sarcomas for both children and adults. He also provides surgical management of other cancers that spread to bone as well as benign tumors of the connective tissues.
Jones's research focuses on the functional outcomes of limb-sparing surgery and on the biology of sarcomas, specifically osteosarcoma, a bone-forming sarcoma that arises most frequently in adolescence or young adulthood. He conducts research using mouse models of disease to study the genetic events that lead to these cancers. Jones conducts this research and other work with mouse models of pediatric sarcomas in the laboratory of Nobel Prize winner Mario Capecchi, PhD.
Jones joined Huntsman Cancer Institute from Mount Sinai Hospital and the University of Toronto, where he completed fellowship training in musculoskeletal surgical oncology. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2002 and completed orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
