It also covers all multidisciplinary aspects and genetics thus giving an up-to-date status report.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This slender book encompasses a wealth of experience from a single center … that pioneered the development of oncoplastic breast surgery. … The book is written for practitioners of all levels who are involved in the surgical treatment of patients with breast disease. It will be interest to nonsurgeons in the field as well. … The book is illustrated with exceptionally clear color photos and diagrams. … This gorgeous book deserves a place on the bookshelf of any surgeon who treats women with breast cancer.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)

“All aspects of breast surgery are presented in short chapters, which are easy to read and are abundantly illustrated. … this would be very useful for someone moving into this area of surgery. The illustrations are presented in a fashion, which again would be extremely useful for those beginning to have an interest in breast problems and correction of these three-dimensional challenges. All in all, this is a well written book. … This book will provide a solid foundation to build upon.”­­­ (Ian Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 33, 2010)
