Atlas of Operative Surgical Oncology

by Rajendra Badwe, Sabita Jiwnani, Anil D’cruz

The concept for the Atlas of Operative Surgical Oncology was derived from the annual live operative surgical oncology workshop “OncoSurg” held at the Tata Memorial Centre since more than a decade. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for most solid cancers, even though the role of multimodality management is increasing. Surgery for cancer has evolved from crude and mutilating excisions to a fine balance between sound oncological techniques and organ preservation, wherever possible. This book comprised of 9 section that focus on breast surgery, head and neck surgery, urology, gynecological malignancy, bone and soft tissue, gastrointestinal, thoracic, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and pediatric, which are further divided into 38 chapters. The well-written text is brief but poignant. Key issues in diagnosis and operative preparation are discussed. The bullet point explanations of the surgical procedure provide a clear description of the operative steps, especially helpful for surgeons who may be experienced in surgery but may not have had the benefit of complete surgical training in cancer surgery. The operative photographs and diagrams are clear, well selected and highly informative. Indications, contraindications and cautions are nicely presented, providing crystal clarity of the key issues that thoughtful surgeons need to properly manage their cancer patients.
