About this book

Beginning with the scientific basis of tumors, 'The Surgery of Childhood Tumors' provides up-to-date information on epidemiology, cytogenetics and molecular biology, before looking at current treatments, integrating surgery, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Additionally, a chapter on counseling reflects the book's holistic approach to treating children with cancer.

The chapters are written by  world-renowned  international authorities on pediatric cancer from major children's cancer groups in the UK, Europe and the US. Contributors discuss geographical variations in treatment for each type of tumor. Excellent full-colour pictures and detailed line drawings illustrate all aspects of managing childhood tumors, including technical details of operation which are often neglected in other texts. This comprehensive book provides a  contemporary approach for pediatric, general and urological surgeons dealing with childhood tumors. New chapters in this second edition provide the latest developments and strategies in pediatric surgical oncology.

"A much needed update of the 1999 edition … . will be beneficial to all in the field of pediatrics or pediatric surgery. It is reasonably advanced … senior surgical house officers and trainees in pediatric surgery will find it readable and instructive. … Overall, this is an excellent book on childhood tumors. It is extensive, well illustrated, complete, and up to date. The organization makes it easy to follow. In short, this is a currently definitive text on the treatment of childhood tumors." (Robert M Arensman, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2008)

"This book for pediatric surgeons, fellows, residents, and pediatric oncologists reflects the extensive experience of its editors and authors in caring for children with cancer. It is well written, well organized, up to date, and easy to read. … This book is an excellent resource for surgeons and other clinicians who care for children with cancer. The information is accessible, concise, and up to date, giving the surgeon a guide for planning preoperative, surgical, and postoperative management." (Joel Shilyansky, The New England Journal of Medicine, March, 2009)

"The recent publication of ‘The Surgery of Childhood Tumors’ … is a most welcome addition to the literature detailing the surgical aspects of childhood tumours. … will provide useful guidance to the specialist surgical oncologist or the paediatric surgeon involved in cancer management in children. … The book is complemented with excellent imaging and clinical photographs, many in colour. … The book fills a void, is well written, and will provide a comprehensive reference for all those involved in this difficult but rewarding area." (Martin T. Corbally, Pediatric Surgery International, Vol. 25, 2009)
