Dr. James C. Wittig Vice Chairman, Orthopedic Surgery; Chief, Orthopedic Oncology and Sarcoma Surgery at HackensackUMC and Director, Skin and Sarcoma Division at the John Theurer Cancer Center in New Jersey is a co-author of the second edition of the five volume series, “Operative Techniques in Orthopedic Surgery,” with specific input on the volume pertaining to Oncology.
The full-color, heavily illustrated, step-by-step book provides explanations of all operative procedures in orthopaedic oncology, and was written in collaboration with Dr. Martin Malawer as well as other experts from leading institutions around the world. The book encompasses a thorough understanding of how to select the best procedure, how to avoid complications and what outcomes to expect. The user-friendly format is ideal for quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. Each procedure is broken down stop by step, with full-color intraoperative photographs and drawings that demonstrate how to perform each technique. Extensive use of bulleted points and tables allows quick and easy reference.
“As a professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Seton Hall University, it has been an honor to help co-author the specific volume on orthopedic surgical oncology and limb sparing surgery for sarcomas. I am excited about future collaborations with Georgetown and look forward to teaching medical students and residents in the future, particularly through the new Seton Hall and HackensackUHN School of Medicine." notes Dr. Wittig, “The addition of this second edition will serve to be an invaluable resource to students and seasoned professionals alike.”
