CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Average Rating 

“This is an excellent monograph of the Diagnosis, Pathology, Imaging, Treatment, and Surgical outcomes of sarcomas and related tumors of the soft tissue variety. … This is a very good book for oropedic surgeons, patologists, students, and clinicians with an interest in the diagnosis and treatment of high and low grade liposarcomas, leomyosarcomas, benign type lesions, and other kind of subcutaneous tumors with distant lung, brain, and liver metastases.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2015)

“This is an impressive book. Written by a surgeon, a pathologist and an oncologist, the book draws heavily on the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center soft tissue sarcoma (STS) database. … it is a book that should be in the library of any sarcoma unit and will appeal to the sub-specialist in Orthopaedic Oncology.” (Robert U. Ashford, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 24, 2014)

“The book is laid out in 27 chapters, with an impressive inclusion of a wide array of sarcoma histology. One of the real strengths of the book is the quality and number of images, figures, tables, and graphs. … The overall outline of the text is well done. … This book is a unique and important addition to the sarcoma literature. … this edtion should find itself on every medical oncologist’s bookshelf … .” (Larry C. Daugherty and Sanjay P. Bagaria, Journal of Radiation Oncology, Vol. 3, 2014)
