Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Management of the Breast, Third Edition provides a comprehensive and contemporary account of techniques in oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery. Uniquely, this book includes short, concise chapters containing only the most critical information. Many of the chapters are entitled “My Approach” and this enables the reader to gain an insight into the clinical practice of the world’s breast disease experts. The true multidisciplinary nature of the book ensures that the perspectives of all members of the breast cancer team are included. This transfer of knowledge between disciplines leads to improved patient care and the integration of multidisciplinary treatment, thus providing an educational and practical multidisciplinary breast cancer book for practicing breast cancer doctors, and trainees worldwide.
