About this book

In recent years, there have been several important developments in the surgical management of breast diseases, such as new techniques for tumor resection, reconstructive surgery, lymph node assessment, and cosmetic surgery. Thus, perhaps more than in any other field, breast surgery has evolved into both a surgical science and an art. This atlas describes various surgical techniques for treating diseases of the breast, incorporating both the science and art of this unique field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a small, but well put together, textbook on breast surgery. … The book is beautifully illustrated with line drawings, and these depict the surgical procedures with a great deal of clarity and precision. … I think it would be very useful for trainees in plastic surgery, but possibly more useful to the general surgeon who wishes to delve into aspects of plastic surgery … . This book fills that grey zone between general surgery and aesthetic surgery of the breast … ." (Ian Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 29, 2006)

"Many new techniques have been developed to diagnose and treat benign breast conditions, treat breast cancer by conservation surgery, surgery of the axilla and breast reconstruction. … I recommend this Atlas to any surgeon dealing with breast disease. It incorporates the art of breast surgery and some of the science." (U. Chetty, The Surgeon, Vol. 4 (4), 2006)

"This is a practical and convenient atlas of breast surgery. The authors are well recognised in their field, with a considerable reputation for oncoplastic breast surgery. … this is a slim and convenient volume to carry in a briefcase. … There are good practical tips for the surgical trainee with numerous line drawings. In particular, there are excellent diagrams for the placing of incisions on the breast. … This is a useful book to have in theatre or out-patients and I recommend it." (Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 90, 2007)
