Book description

This book offers a comprehensive set of principles that lead to ideal outcomes following treatment for Head and Neck Cancers, especially in those patients who need major reconstructive procedures. It goes beyond the scope of basic Head and Neck Cancer textbooks, or of reconstructive surgery texts, in that the essential focus is on optimal outcomes beyond fundamental evaluation and management. The book addresses a range of essential aspects: the chapters on Functional and Aesthetic considerations underscore crucial basics that should be understood by all surgeons, while other chapters relevant to all members of the Head and Neck team address Imaging, Robotics, Radiation Morbidities, Prosthetics and Quality of Life. Throughout the book, particular attention is given to high-quality photographs, flow diagrams and tables wherever possible, combined with crisp writing to achieve effective communication. The book is unique in the completeness of its approach: from the time of initial presentation, to the time patients resume their normal lives. Although written primarily for surgeons, its value extends to all members of the multi-disciplinary team managing Head and Neck Cancer patients today.
