Bio
Dr. Forsberg is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a member of the Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, the International Society of Limb Salvage, the Orthopaedic Surgery Osseointegration Society and the Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons. He is also the founder and director of the Bethesda Orthopaedic Alumni Association, a private, not-for-profit organization.

Research Interests
Dr. Forsberg’s research efforts are geared toward applying personalized medicine to extremity tumor surgery using advanced bioinformatics approaches. He developed the first validated model to help guide the surgical treatment of metastatic bone disease. Using similar techniques, he furthered our understanding of the complex relationships between variables in the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities. His military-specific research includes the characterization and prevention of combat-related heterotopic ossification, and developing next-generation osseointegration techniques for patients with amputations.
