Editorial Reviews

`The information, particularly regarding the history, development, availability and applications of prostheses in this type of surgery, is certainly the most complete account that I have seen. This section also includes excellent chapters on phantom limb pain, anaesthetics and pain management for such large resection cases and also a discussion of the principles of rehabilitation without excessive detail. This text is an excellent and perfect reference for any surgical department but in particular for those where oncology has a high profile. It would make excellent reading for any general or orthopaedic registrar and similarly would be an appropriate addition to the library of any individual orthopaedic surgeon or surgical oncologist.'
