After Specializing in Orthopaedics, I had the choice to go for Joint Replacements or Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeries.

Bone Cancer is a rare form of cancer but so are the bone cancer specialists. Very few orthopaedic surgeons choose to go in the field of Ortho Onco Surgery. Dr. JS Virk is of the few Ortho Onco Surgeons in India.
