An Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology 3rd Edition
An Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology 3rd Edition We, the editors, are pleased to introduce you to an updated third edition. We believe that in the mould of the previous editions we have included the standard repertoire of the gynecologic oncologist plus all that is new and leading edge.
Features of An Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology 3rd Edition
All chapters have been reviewed by both the editors and their authors, some chapters have been replaced, and we have added some new chapters, including preoperative work-up, robotic surgery, uterine transplantation, and the impact of organ retrieval on training. In addition to this, we have included a new chapter on removal of upper abdominal ovarian cancer. New sections have been added to the chapter on anatomy and these tie in with a new chapter on total mesometrial resection. The superb artwork of Dee McLean and Joanna Cameron is continued and we believe allows easy step-by-step breakdown of each procedure.
This book follows the “cookbook” formula of the previous editions, that is, nobody is telling you which operation to do, but rather telling you how to do the operation you have decided upon. Many of our contributors developed/improved the operations they describe and we believe it is a sign of the success of the book that innovative surgeons are keen to take part. It has once again been a privilege and a pleasure to collect together and edit this selection of contributions which we hope covers all the mainline procedures currently in use in gynecologic oncology, not to say a few which we believe may become important.
