About this book


In recent years, great advances in translational research have led to new paradigms in the treatment of cancers of the head and neck.  Written by leading international physicians and investigators, this innovative multi-disciplinary book presents the most up-to-date research and clinical approaches.  Coverage is given to progress in a variety of clinical settings, including programs of organ and function preservation, curative treatments, unresectable disease, adjuvant treatments in high-risk patients, and recurrent/metastatic disease.  Complementary to the techniques of surgery, radiotherapy, and systemic treatments, the authors present data on epidemiology, molecular pathology, normal tissue complications, rehabilitation, palliative care, and treatment in the elderly.  State-of-the-art functional imaging is elucidated; and the latest developments in high precision techniques in irradiation, sequencing of chemo- and radiotherapy, as well as the integration of biomolecular therapies into cytotoxic treatments are explored.

From the reviews:

“Head & Neck Cancer is a comprehensive detailed textbook for Head and Neck surgeons which is going to prove to be the gold standard for all head & neck oncology books published. It is easily the best book out there on this subject. … This is a really great textbook for the price and it is a welcome addition to my library on Otorhinolaryngology.” (Joseph J. Grenier,, September, 2013)

“The book is divided into fifty chapters. All the chapters incorporate most up to date information and provide a succinct overview of various topics. … this text is well written, in a clear style and gives us a clear overview of not only the scientific and clinical but also the quality of life aspects of management of head and neck cancer. … I would recommend this book to all members of multidisciplinary team involved in assessing and managing head and neck cancer … .” (Mriganka De, Oncology News, Vol. 7 (1), March/April, 2012)
