Soft Tissue Pathology

Soft tissue cases may be directed to Elizabeth Montgomery, MD. Dr. Montgomery completed her AP/CP training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 1988. She became a member of the Soft Tissue Pathology Department of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, where she was on the consultation staff until assuming a position at Georgetown University. At Georgetown, she worked with the Orthopedic Surgery staff to develop the sarcoma service. During this time, she also held a joint appointment in the Department of Gastroenterology and gained considerable expertise in gastrointestinal pathology. She has lectured nationally and internationally and published widely in both disciplines. She has published many primary soft tissue articles and a soft tissue textbook. She participated in the WHO Soft Tissue Classification (2002), which included two new entities for which she wrote the defining papers. She works closely with the sarcoma team at Johns Hopkins to care for these complicated patients.
