About this book


Oncoplastic and reconstructive surgery combines the most up-to-date techniques in plastic surgery with surgery for breast cancer, providing optimal oncologic and aesthetic results by means of a single procedure. In recent years, it has attracted widespread attention worldwide and is now being used ever more frequently and for a wider range of indications.


This book demonstrates why oncoplastic surgery represents such an exciting tool for surgeons who undertake breast surgery. Fundamental principles and basic concepts are clearly outlined, and diverse techniques are presented by acknowledged experts from across the world. The emphasis is very much on a “how to do” approach, with detailed guidance and advice on the various techniques. The informative text is supported by a wealth of color illustrations, and accompanying videos of procedures are available via the publisher’s website.


Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery will serve as an ideal reference work that will help surgical fellows and specialists to learn about indications and selection of patients, to master technical skills, and to manage complications effectively.

“Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery is a nice addition to existing reference guides for breast reconstructive surgery. … This is an extremely helpful textbook for any surgeon who is studying and/or performing reconstructive breast surgery. The detail and illustrations in each chapter are reader friendly and ensures this book can be used as a reference for any type of reconstructive surgery. … I recommend this book highly to the readership.” (Allen Gabriel, Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Vol. 35 (8), November, 2015)

“This book brings together world experts in the fields of oncologic breast surgery and plastic surgery to address the combination of oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery. Photographs, illustrations, algorithms, and technique descriptions are used to define complete surgical breast care. … This serves as a nice guidebook for clinicians at various training levels, but is most suitable for residents, fellows, and general breast surgical oncologists. … It thoroughly describes the workup, evaluation, and overall treatment planning for patients with breast cancer.” (Jerrod N. Keith, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2013)
