Review From the reviews: "This is a primer for those uninitiated in the field of plastic reconstruction of defects of the body resulting from surgery for cancer. It introduces the various reconstructive techniques to physicians whose care of patients overlaps with that of the plastic surgeon. … The book is aimed at oncologists, both medical and surgical, whether students, residents, or practicing physicians. The authors, for the most part, are plastic surgeons who have had experience reconstructing specific parts of the body after cancer removal." (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2008) From the Back Cover Principles of Cancer Reconstructive Surgery is a reference text for medical and surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, family practice physicians and dermatologists, providing an overview for reconstructive procedures. Interested residents, medical students and health care professionals may find this to be a resource for information on reconstructive plastic surgery. It is designed to educate those involved with the management of cancer patients and serve as a reference source. The disease specific format facilitates quick reference for those who wish to focus on a single body area or disease. The most commonly occurring cancers, breast, melanoma, head and neck, are covered in an overview chapter and in greater detail in individual chapters. This volume includes nearly 300 color illustrations and the 7x10 format give the reader excellent detail and clarity.
