New developments in the surgical management of breast disease surgery daily. New techniques for tumor resection, reconstructive surgery, lymph node assessment and cosmetic surgery are surfacing due to new demands in the market. The treatments are aimed at those patients diagnosed with breast disease who need quality medical treatment and require equally pleasing aesthetic results. This is an international text that outlines the management of both the malignant and benign diseases of the breast. High quality illustrations accompany the text to highlight the key aspects of surgical techniques. An emphasis on the techniques that provide good cosmetic outcomes is the underlying theme of this text.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a small, but well put together, textbook on breast surgery. . The book is beautifully illustrated with line drawings, and these depict the surgical procedures with a great deal of clarity and precision. . I think it would be very useful for trainees in plastic surgery, but possibly more useful to the general surgeon who wishes to delve into aspects of plastic surgery . . This book fills that grey zone between general surgery and aesthetic surgery of the breast . ." (Ian Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 29, 2006)"Many new techniques have been developed to diagnose and treat benign breast conditions, treat breast cancer by conservation surgery, surgery of the axilla and breast reconstruction. . I recommend this Atlas to any surgeon dealing with breast disease. It incorporates the art of breast surgery and some of the science." (U. Chetty, The Surgeon, Vol. 4 (4), 2006)"This is a practical and convenient atlas of breast surgery. The authors are well recognised in their field, with a considerable reputation for oncoplastic breast surgery. . this is a slim and convenient volume to carry in a briefcase. . There are good practical tips for the surgical trainee with numerous line drawings. In particular, there are excellent diagrams for the placing of incisions on the breast. . This is a useful book to have in theatre or out-patients and I recommend it." (Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 90, 2007)
