Clinical and Research Background

Dr. Hoch is an expert in musculoskeletal pathology, and is a member of a multidisciplinary team of physicians who treat and manage patients with musculoskeletal disorders, particularly neoplasms. He specializes in diagnosing sarcomas such as osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, liposarcoma, and chondrosarcoma (among others) as well as benign tumors of bone and soft tissue. In addition, he is a specialist in diagnosing non-neoplastic diseases of bone and soft tissue including arthritis, infections, metabolic diseases, and reactive conditions. His research efforts focus on how to better diagnose and subclassify bone and soft tissue lesions and develop ways to better predict how sarcomas behave and respond to treatment utilizing immunohistochemical and molecular techniques along with traditional clinicopathological features.

Dr. Hoch has also acquired diagnostic expertise in head and neck pathology with special interests in salivary gland neoplasia, challenging squamous proliferations, and bone and soft tissue tumors of the head and neck.
