Overview

The focus of Berek and Hacker's for four editions has been on the application of basic and clinical science to the clinical practice of gynecologic oncology. That approach has been successful and the book has been well received. The Fifth Edition follows the format of the previous editions, with the addition of color. We will also include a fully searchable companion Website that includes an image bank.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David G. Mutch, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive overview of the treatment of gynecologic cancers and its ancillary issues by experts in the field. This fifth edition is timely and necessary given the changes that have occurred in the treatment of these diseases since the fourth edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: It is intended as a reference tool for fellows, attendings, and those who have chosen a career in gynecologic oncology. This book achieves those objectives. It is a great asset for physicians who are taking care of women with these cancers.
Audience: The audience is fellows and practitioners — those who have made a career out of caring for women with gynecologic cancers. It is not a beginner's book.
Features: This is a comprehensive compilation of the issues necessary to understand when caring for women with gynecologic cancers. The authors cover the pertinent basic science and molecular issues, as well as the various specific gynecologic cancers. They also cover the ancillary issues such as preoperative care and psychosocial issues associated with these diseases. The book is well organized and the references are appropriate.
Assessment: This is a really outstanding book written by authorities in the field and is a must-own for those caring for women with these diseases. It serves its purpose well.
