Synopsis: Principles and Practice of Surgical Oncologyuniquely emphasizes a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to the treatment of solid tumors. It presents treatment strategies that combine surgery with preoperative or postoperative adjunctive chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and/or radiation therapy to achieve optimal outcome. The book features contributions from surgeons, basic scientists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation therapists, and medical oncologists and offers a comprehensive presentation of genetics, molecular biology, pathogenesis, and multimodal therapeutic approaches. A unique feature of the book is a commentary following each chapter, which describes alternative approaches and discusses controversial areas of current therapy.

Review: Annals of Surgery, 01-APR-09, Volume 251, Issue 4, David J. Bentrem, MD, MS, Chicago, IL -- "This second edition textbook has been expanded and contains 59 chapters focused on the combined multidisciplinary treatment (drug therapy, radiotherapy, and surgery) of cancer. After each chapter, there is a commentary discussing controversial areas of current therapy. Principles and Practice of Surgical Oncology emphasizes an integrated approach to the treatment of solid tumors. Advances in cancer biology, pathology, and imaging sciences are highlighted. Chapters on the genetic basis for disease- and site-specific imaging modalities are particularly informative. The chapters on nutrition and pain management are well done and unique among surgical oncology texts. Coverage of soft tissue tumors is comprehensive, whereas palliative topics could be expanded. The list of contributors extends well beyond Los Angeles with contributions from surgeons, basic scientists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation therapists, and medical oncologists. "This work elevates the standard of general surgical oncology texts. Thoughtful, comprehensive chapters provide valuable information for all levels of training. Surgeons in training (residents and fellows) and practicing surgeons will find the text helpful. The information is contemporary enough to benefit even the experienced practitioner. The purchase price includes access to the complete contents online. This content is fully searchable and there is no time limit to this access. This allows for access to figures and tables for personal use and many full text references can be easily retrieved with a few clicks. "This textbook...is well worth the investment. Contemporary cancer care requires the surgeon not only to be technically sound, but also well versed in the biology of cancer, and to possess a thorough understanding of available therapies. A coordinated multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients with cancer remains essential. I think this 360 degrees view of cancer care is necessary to continue to improve survival for patients with solid tumors."-Annals of Surgery
