The article focuses on the case of a 52 year old man who was referred to orthopedic surgeons with a history of dull pain in his lower back. A discussion of diagnostic procedures which were performed on the man and revealed a tumor on his sacrum, and of successful computer-assisted sacral tumor resection which was performed on the man, is presented.
