About this book


This comprehensive volume provides exhaustive interpretations of surgery for gynecologic cancer. In these chapters, expert authors expound the history, principles and indications, preoperative evaluations, techniques, morbidity, and the future prospects for each surgical procedure. Also included are comparisons of the training systems of gynecologic surgeons in Japan and the USA.

Recently, minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopic and robotic approaches have been introduced into the gynecologic oncology field. Readers will be interested to know the history, advances, and current status of gynecologic surgery in Japan.

This collection methodically broadens understanding of new surgical methods with quality assurance aimed at saving the cancer patient’s life, from the point of view of gynecologic oncologists. Thus the book benefits not only experienced gynecologists, but also young physicians and all medical oncologists who are involved in gynecologic cancers.
