About this book

This text provides a comprehensive overview of orthopaedic oncology – the field of orthopaedic surgery that specializes in the evaluation and treatment of bone and soft tissue tumors of the musculoskeletal system. The opening chapters cover musculoskeletal imaging interpretation and the principles of musculoskeletal biopsy. Assessment and treatment of the full range of tumors are then described in a series of well-illustrated chapters. Detailed consideration is given to benign tumors, osteosarcomas, Ewing sarcomas, chondrosarcomas, metastatic bone disease of the axial and appendicular skeleton, and soft tissue sarcomas. This book will be invaluable for both orthopaedic surgeons and medical oncologists, providing a framework for understanding the fundamentals of these tumors and a sound basis for their treatment.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This volume in the Cancer Treatment and Research series concisely addresses primary and metastatic tumors of the skeletal system in 223 pages. … it would be most useful to orthopedic residents and registrars. … This is a quick reference for skeletal tumors that is small enough that it can be carried in the pocket of a lab coat.” (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)

“This is a comprehensive single volume work on the cancers of bone and joint tissue. … The color histological sections are very high quality. This book is fine for orthopaedic surgeons at all age levels.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)
