Reviews

From the reviews: “This is a nice book for dermatology residents to read as a foundation for surgical treatment of skin cancers. … Color photographs nicely illustrate the various surgical flaps. … The audience is dermatologists. … The book delivers its punch lines without cluttering readers’ minds with the minutiae of supporting studies. … there is valuable information for everyone in this reference. This is a well thought out book that should be included in the dermatology libraries of major training medical centers.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2010) “Experts in the field of cutaneous oncology synthesize extensive literature reviews with their own experience to provide step-by-step approaches … in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of skin cancers. … the primary audience for Skin Cancer Management will be dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons, any clinician who cares for patients with skin cancer will find it of great value … the book will help improve communication among a wide range of specialists as they collaborate to improve the care of patients with skin cancer.” (Christopher J. Miller and Joel M. Gelfand, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (20), 2010)
