New York/Stuttgart – You have successfully removed the patient’s cancer, saving their life. You had to remove half their tongue to do it though. Now what? Reconstruction of the Head and Neck: A Defect Oriented Approach, recently published by Thieme, answers that question for many of the most challenging defects in the head and neck. It enables surgeons to match their patients' defects with those detailed in the book. It offers surgeons excellent guidance on the latest techniques for achieving optimal functional and aesthetic surgical results.

“Professor Eric M. Genden ranks as one of today’s foremost head and neck surgeons. Not only is he accomplished in conventional diagnostic and ablative techniques in the head and neck but he is also on the cutting edge of new and developing surgical strategies…he is a superb educator. This book is abundant evidence of his dedication to teaching. It is a superb addition to the literature and very timely.”- From the Foreword by Dr. Richard E. Hayden

Surgeons and fellows involved in head and neck reconstruction will greatly benefit from the extensive coverage of the best methods to treat some of the most challenging defects they will face.
