4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"...a comprehensive and authoritative synthesis of current information is sorely needed, and this book fulfills that need admirably....The figures (many in color) and tables reproduce beautifully. The chapters on ultrasound, clinical trials, and plastic surgery, are particularly valuable. This is a terrific and incredibly useful book on breast surgical oncology, and will be an important reference in the field."--Doody's Review Service
