Dr. McCormick recently published a book on Tumors of the Spinal Canal. The book includes chapters by leading surgeons describing state of the art surgical techniques for the contemporary management of spinal tumors. The book is co-edited by Dr. Simon Hanft, who was trained by Dr. McCormick at Columbia/New York Presbyterian and is now on faculty at Rutgers University. It is the thirteenth book written or edited by Dr. McCormick. Nearly all are dedicated to the evaluation and management of spinal tumors.
