First in Ten Years: Oncology “Bible”
Click here for article in April 13, 2012 issue of Orthopedics This Week

James C. Wittig, M.D., along with Martin Malawar, M.D. and Jacob Bickels, M.D., have co-authored “Operative Techniques in Orthopedic Surgical Oncology,” the first book of its kind in ten years. Dr. Wittig, Chief of Orthopedic Oncology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, tells OTW, “My co-authors and I have tremendous experience in treating these types of patients. We have also developed surgical techniques that have been proven to be reliable and safe methods of dealing with different types of tumors. With this book, residents, fellows and practicing orthopedists have step-by-step instructions to treating any and all type of tumor. Also making this book special are the hundreds of color illustrations demonstrating what amounts to 10 to 20 years of surgical techniques…not to mention the videos that correlate with the specific procedures.  

“Most orthopedists don’t see many tumors, and are understandably less informed about how to handle certain situations. This book shows you how to ‘stay out of trouble,’ especially with biopsies—something that is so important that done wrong, can result in unnecessary amputation. Each step for each kind of tumor in each anatomic location…that is what we have laid out.
