Surgical Management of the Breast will serve as a very useful clinical guide and realistic approach to the practicing physician and healthcare providers who are involved with the care of the breast patient. It 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. The text also provides several chapters on the importance of the team approach to the breast cancer patient, focusing on the critical role of each member of the multidisciplinary team that will ultimately impact the outcome of breast cancer patients. Within select chapters, “How I do it” clinical scenarios are supplied and described in very practical terms. Another unique aspect of the book is the incorporation of synoptic questions with detailed answers, akin to the self-assessment (SESAP) format questions and answers, at the end of each chapter. 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. All chapters will be written by specialists in their respective fields and incorporate the latest scientific and clinical information. This will then be easily applied to the clinical setting to the breast patient.
Surgical Management of the Breast will be of great value to general surgeons, breast surgeons, surgical oncologists, general surgery residents and fellows.
