About this book

This volume is the product of the author's long experience with melanomas and sarcomas and to a lesser but significant degree with upper gastrointestinal cancers, colorectal and breast cancers.  As such, it offers a “hands-on” practical guide to approaching complex soft-tissue tumors and for performing more extensive tumor resections based on over 40 years of surgical experience.  It provides important details about the positioning of patients, incision types, and exposure which can be of paramount importance in the resection of certain tumors. The book contains important general surgical principles for approaching tumors in a variety of locations but also offers the detail necessary for the safe and oncologically sound resection of these malignancies. Moreover, this operative atlas contains specific information for procedures which are not as commonly encountered in surgical training, but can be invaluable in the management of patients with locally aggressive tumors, such as hemipelvectomy and its variants, sacral resections, and forequarter amputation. 

Through the use of multiple detailed illustrations, Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology serves as a valuable resource to the general surgeon or surgical oncologist in the operative management of patients with cancer in the abdomen, retroperitoneum, pelvis or extremities.

Reviews

“This comprehensive atlas of oncologic procedures describes and illustrates the primary operations performed for the treatment of solid tumors. … It is a must have for most cancer surgeons and for general or vascular surgeons who may need an atlas that carefully describes the techniques, approaches, and exposures of complex areas of the body. … Because it covers all types of operations, it is written for general surgical oncologists or general surgeons, but also provides enough information for specialists.” (James J. Mezhir, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2015)

“This is a very well illustrated text and atlas of operative surgical oncology. More specifically, musculoskeletal and soft tissue tumors are described. … This is a good reference for surgical oncologists, surgery residents, and oncology fellows. This is a very ‘hands-on’ approach to the treatment of benign and malignant lesions of the genitourinary, gastrointestinal, otolaryngeal, and musculoskeletal systems. … Overall, this is a very good book.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2015)
