New York/Stuttgart –The surgical management and treatment of oral cancer is one of the greatest challenges for residents and fellows specializing in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The unique anatomy of the perioral region makes tumor ablation and surgical reconstruction particularly complex. Oral Cancer Surgery: A Visual Guide, recently published by Thieme, is a practical handbook that presents the most important procedures in oral cancer surgery in a concise and highly visual manner, providing a solid repertoire of basic surgical techniques for handling almost any case and achieving the best possible results.
“This book concentrates on key procedures that offer young surgeons the possibility to solve almost any case of oral cancer. Basic principles are didactically edited in series of pictures and/or diagrams. Traditional approaches are combined with innovative techniques. Anatomical introductions connect previous knowledge with the surgical procedures. The compact and concise character of the book should enable the resident to study, prepare and recapitulate all issues regarding oral cancer surgery in a short time.” – From the Preface
This is an essential reference for all young surgeons wanting to review the surgical principals, anatomy, and techniques that form the basis of oral cancer therapy. More experienced surgeons will also find it useful for reviewing techniques and surgical strategy before heading into the operating room.
