Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a primer for those uninitiated in the field of plastic reconstruction of defects of the body resulting from surgery for cancer. It introduces the various reconstructive techniques to physicians whose care of patients overlaps with that of the plastic surgeon. . The book is aimed at oncologists, both medical and surgical, whether students, residents, or practicing physicians. The authors, for the most part, are plastic surgeons who have had experience reconstructing specific parts of the body after cancer removal." (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
