Cutaneous Malignancy of the Head and Neck: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Randal Weber, Brian Moore
Details: 580 pages, Full Color, Hardcover, 8.5" x 11"
Skin cancer, including melanoma and nonmelanoma cancers, is the most common malignancy in the United States and constitutes an evolving global epidemic. Although the majority of these lesions occur on the head and neck, the treatment of skin cancer crosses numerous medical and surgical specialties. Unfortunately, the preponderance of treatment occurs in a disjointed fashion as dermatologists, surgeons, primary care providers, and radiation oncologists endeavor to cure patients within their own spheres. Consequently, aggressive malignancies are often identified late, and patient outcomes are unsatisfactory, with potentially avoidable morbidity and mortality.
Dr. Randal Weber, Professor and Chairman of Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and a world-renowned leader in the treatment of aggressive cutaneous malignancy, and Dr. Brian A. Moore have assembled a panel of current and emerging leaders in comprehensive oncologic care to clarify the challenges and advances in treating skin cancer of the head and neck. Unlike other anatomic regions, the complex anatomy, unique functions, and aesthetic import of head and neck structures demand great technical expertise and a collaborative approach to meet the expectations of patients.
For the first time, a true multidisciplinary approach to cutaneous malignancy of the head and neck is presented, as international experts in head and neck surgical oncology, dermatology, Mohs micrographic surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology present state-of-the-art techniques and promising horizons in the treatment of cutaneous malignancy of the head and neck. Whether in primary care or a specialty practice, this text should prove invaluable to any practitioner who treats patients with skin cancer of the head and neck.
This is the only textbook on this subject that comprehensively addresses patient management - from diagnosis, treatment (in all forms, including chemotherapy and radiation), and reconstruction.
This book makes preparation for actual patient care or presentations simpler and easier; currently, someone wanting to study this field would have to get articles, a head and neck surgery text, and a facial plastic/reconstruction text to gather all the information that is presented here.
This book is suitable for ENT surgeons, plastic surgeons, general surgical oncologists, dermatologists, and even radiation/medical oncologists in endemic areas who treat patients with aggressive cutaneous malignancies. Each chapter has information that will be valuable to both seasoned practitioners and residents in training.
—Doody Enterprises, Inc. (November 4, 2011)
"...filled with practical and detailed information, and with good quality color images and straightforward tables this book targets a broad spectrum of physicians involved with head and neck skin cancer, including head and neck surgeons, dermatologists, and radiation oncologists. "...this book is the most up-to-date textbook for a multidisciplinary approach on cutaneous head and neck malignancies addressing the variety of treating physicians illustrated in a colorful and scientific way. Further, the price is affordable given the amount of material covered and the excellent quality of the tables, diagrams, and imaging pictures."
—Stephan Haerle, MD, Jonathan C. Irish, MD, MSc, FRCSC, FACS, Head & Neck (2012)
""This book recognizes that cutaneous malignancy of the head and neck often requires a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment...The well-designed tables and beautiful pictures are great additions. The strength of this book lies in its short chapters from different perspectives that cover comprehensively the multiple ways to treat head and neck malignancies...It provides readers with good, basic information on these malignancies that they would otherwise have to get by purchasing separate books on radiation, dermatology, histopathology, reconstruction, etc."
