In The Press

From the reviews:

"This book details surgery for bone cancers in children. … The audience includes bone tumor surgeons as well as any medical professionals interested in musculoskeletal oncology. The book describes the different ways bone sarcomas are treated. … Clinical results and a section of questions and answers are presented. The radiographs and clinical photographs are of very good quality. The references are abundant and relevant. … Biomedical libraries, bone oncologists, and bone tumor surgeons are strongly encouraged to purchase this important book." (Edward Abraham, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2009)

“This book represents a summary of the work of Jose Cañadell at Pamplona on epiphysiolysis in malignant bone tumours. The book introduces the subject by discussing the treatment of paediatric bone tumours, the surgical options available and the role of the growth plate as a barrier to tumour spread. … The book is very interesting and the technique is fascinating and well explained. … it will make a good addition to libraries in bone tumour units … .”­­­ (Robert U. Ashford, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 20, May, 2010)
