Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neil A. Fine, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is an overview of current techniques in cancer reconstruction as performed by leading surgeons in tertiary referral centers. The book is multiauthored, but it is well edited and has a smooth flow with excellent photographs and illustrations.
Purpose: The editor proposes to overview current techniques in cancer reconstruction for surgeons and nonsurgeons involved in the care of cancer patients. The book is particularly well timed, because it espouses the merits of specialty care at a time when specialty care is being questioned. The editor deserves credit for an excellent book that delivers on all fronts.
Audience: The book is written for all practitioners who care for cancer patients. All plastic surgeons should encourage the wide dissemination of this book to nonplastic surgeons, after they have read it themselves. The editor is well respected in the field of cancer reconstruction and has assembled an excellent group of contributing authors.
Features: The book is well illustrated with high quality black-and-white photos and line drawings. The references, although not exhaustive, are pertinent and current. The book cover, page layout, and illustrations are well balanced and well done.
Assessment: This book should be required reading for anyone interested in the care of cancer patients. The book provides an excellent overview of technical considerations for plastic surgeons, but more importantly it provides sound support for the role of specialty care in treating cancer patients. There are many people who do not understand what plastic surgeons have to offer in the multidisciplinary care of cancer patients; this book should be most helpful to them — I hope they see it.
