About this book

Oncological surgeons are often requested in their clinical practice to identify and manage uncommon and complex situations. It is therefore of the utmost importance that they are well aware of  the most recent technological evolutions, in order to achieve the best possible results in term of oncological outcome, with a concern on quality of life and economical issues.  Furthermore, new techniques can  give a fundamental contribution in overcoming the limitations of standard approaches.

An essential aim of this book is to underline the great importance and the need of an effective coordination of multi-disciplinary care among surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation therapists, plastic surgeons and ancillary services, in order to optimise patient outcome.

 

 

Reviews

From the reviews: “This slim monograph presents a concise update ‘on new technologies in the detection and treatment of neoplastic pathologies.’ One of a series of such monographs produced biannually by the Italian Society of Surgery, this book is best used as a comprehensive, expanded inventory of techniques and applications. … Written primarily for surgeons and other practitioners, the book will be of value to the wide range of physicians and others involved in the care of patients with cancer.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
