From the reviews:
“This book encourages reader interaction, empowering and enthusing the reader from start to finish. … All the images and drawings are to an exceptionally high quality. Furthermore, the book comes with a DVD that further supports the learning experience of the reader. This concise book, through its clarity, forcefulness, and correct and direct use of potentially new words to the reader, manages to be of use to not just surgeons, but indeed any person involved with surgical oncology.” (Thomas I. Lemon, British Journal of Surgery,, July, 2013)
“For the general surgeon and surgical trainee … this valuable resource provides an up-to-date guide on how to minimize the pain and stress of surgery, especially for cancer patients. Serving as a text book and operative atlas rolled into one, this reference takes a far-reaching and sometimes futuristic view of non-invasive treatments for internal diseases.” (The Electric Review, October, 2012)
“The aim is to present the various applications of minimally invasive surgery in the field of surgical oncology. … Surgical oncologists and minimally invasive surgeons are the intended audience. The book also can be useful for gynecologists and urologists … . especially useful for senior residents and fellows in surgery … . a topnotch book aimed at specialty surgeons that also will be very useful for surgical trainees who aspire to a career in either specialty. … a perfect start for this very exciting field.” (Prashant Khullar, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2011)

Textul de pe ultima copertă

The past 20 years have witnessed an extraordinarily rapid adoption of minimally invasive surgical techniques, and increasingly these techniques are being employed in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of malignancies. This book is designed to serve as a unique and comprehensive overview of the current status of minimally invasive surgery in oncology patients and in addition offers valuable insights into the future of this constantly evolving field. The first section of the book is devoted to essential background information and to explaining what is physiologically distinctive in the cancer patient undergoing laparoscopic surgery. The second section then examines in detail a wide range of clinical aspects and issues across different disciplines, with clear instruction on the use of minimally invasive procedures. The aim is to enable the reader to make treatment decisions appropriate to the individual patient, to carry them out effectively, and to institute suitable postoperative care. Summaries of the latest knowledge in traditional therapies such as chemotherapy are also provided when appropriate. Each chapter is written by a recognized expert, and numerous high-quality illustrations are included to assist understanding. This book will serve both as a clinical reference guide and as an operative atlas, and is certain to prove invaluable in daily clinical practice.
