Growing up in nearby Cookeville, TN, Dr. Wallace graduated summa cum laude and phi beta kappa from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and then attended the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, TN, for medical school, where she graduated with honors. She and her husband then moved to Cleveland, OH, where she completed her surgical internship and orthopaedic residency at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Not satisfied with one fellowship, Dr. Wallace completed a fellowship in orthopaedic traumatology at the Georgia Orthopaedic Trauma Institute in Macon, GA, and then a musculoskeletal oncology fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.
As the only fellowship-trained musculoskeletal oncologist in the greater east Tennessee region, Dr. Wallace is uniquely qualified to treat both primary and metastatic bone and soft tissue tumors of the extremities and pelvis. She has experience treating both adult and pediatric oncology patients with diagnoses including (but not limited to) osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, soft tissue sarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma, multiple myeloma, and metastatic cancer to the bones.
Dr. Wallace also has experience in the treatment of complex fractures, including those around the joints and of the pelvis and acetabulum. During her two fellowships, she also gained significant experience in the treatment of osteomyelitis and complex joint reconstruction and replacement.
Dr. Wallace and her husband, Jason, both bleed orange and love attending Volunteer sporting events. An avid equestrian since the age of 5, Dr. Wallace and her husband also enjoy Crossfit and distance running. They currently have two cats and a German Shepherd named Elvis.
