Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy Schindler, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent new atlas devoted to the field of surgical oncology and its operative procedures. Its 29 chapters are divided by organ system, and each chapter addresses pertinent benign and malignant neoplasms and their operative management. A chapter on laparoscopy for malignant diseases is included.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a readable, comprehensive text that depicts the rationale for and illustrates the basic operative principles essential to the therapy of various benign and malignant solid tumors. This is a worthy objective that is nicely accomplished.
Audience: This book is directed toward residents, fellows, and practitioners of surgical oncology and is written at an appropriate level for that audience. It is not intended to cover all aspects and variations of each disease or procedure, but will be very useful for obtaining the essentials on most tumors.
Features: It contains a number of charts and a large number of drawings that complement the text. The illustrations are adequate in number and complexity to demonstrate procedures clearly in most cases. When space does not permit description of variations on procedures, adequate references are provided.
Assessment: This is an excellent atlas. A readable text in combination with numerous clear illustrations provide the reader with a basic understanding of the surgical principles and practice of many oncological diseases.
