Posted On 2019-06-17 14:18:38


This focused issue on “Reconstruction in Orthopaedic Oncology-frontier and Future Trends” is edited by Dr. Wei Guo and Dr. Tao Ji, from Musculoskeletal Tumor Center, People’s Hospital, Peking University, Beijing, China; Dr. Paul Jutte, from Department of Orthopaedics, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands; and Dr. Eric Henderson, Dartmouth Orthopaedic Surgery, Sarcoma & Connective Tissue Oncology Program, Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, USA.

Dr. Wei Guo is the Chairman and Professor Musculoskeletal Tumor Center and Director of Orthopaedic Oncology Lab at the People's Hospital, Peking University. His research interests include: Limb salvage in malignant bone and soft tissue tumor, Surgical treatment of pelvic and sacral tumor, Surgical treatment of spinal tumor, Chemotherapy inmalignant bone and soft tissue tumor.

Dr. Tao Ji is currently serving as Associate Professor of musculoskeletal tumor center at People’s Hospital, Peking University, Beijing. Dr. Ji’s research mainly focus on both clinical and basic research in orthoapedic oncology, including biomechanics of tumor endoprosthesis, complex reconstruction after tumor resention, pediatric limb salvage. For tumor biomolecular research, he works on exploring the tumor phenotype and metastasis mechanism of osteosarcoma by Wnt pathway, angiogenesis and next-generation sequencing.

Dr. Paul Jutte's main interest is in treatment of bone tumors and infections. His current research is aimed at minimizing tissue damage, improving safety and efficacy of surgical treatment of tumor and infection. He works on local tumor ablation using minimal invasive image guided strategies and intraoperative image guidance with computer assisted surgery and patient specific 3D instruments and implants. He studies diagnosis and treatment of complex infections of biomaterials and bone.

Dr. Eric R. Henderson is the Medical Director of Sarcoma & Connective Tissue Oncology at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center of the University of South Florida Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. He is also the Research Director of the Department of Orthopaedics and a physician of orthopaedic surgery at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in the US. Dr. Henderson is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Geisel-Dartmouth School of Medicine as well. He has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed publications in international scientific journals.
