very practical terms
· Incorporates synoptic questions with detailed answers
· Written by specialists in their respective fields
Surgical Management of the Breast provides a clear, concise source of information in order to make real-life, evidence-based decisions for all aspects of breast disease, both benign and malignant. The volume provides the latest breakthroughs in breast cancer research, ranging from paradigm shifts in the surgical management of the axilla, the changing role of adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the impact of molecular medicine in decision-making and the controversial role of prophylactic mastectomy in our era. Within select chapters, “How I do it” clinical scenarios are supplied and described in very practical terms. Also included at the end of each chapter are synoptic questions with detailed answers, akin to the self-assessment (SESAP) format questions and answers. These questions provide a basis for continuous medical education (CME) for the practicing physician and surgeon, further in surgical oncology and breast surgery, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and breast radiologists enhancing a focused approach to the management of breast disease in preparation for the American Board of Surgery certification and re-certification for the general surgeon.
Surgical Management of the Breast is of great value to general surgeons, breast surgeons, surgical oncologists, general surgery residents, and fellows.
