Master Techniques in General Surgery: Breast Surgery is the first volume of a new series that presents common and advanced procedures in the major subspecialties of general surgery. The series is overseen by Josef E. Fischer, MD, editor of the classic two-volume reference Mastery of Surgery.
Master Techniques in General Surgery: Breast Surgery is written by acknowledged master surgeons, emphasizes surgical procedures, and is lavishly illustrated with original full-color drawings. The contributors fully explain their preferred techniques in step-by-step, thoroughly illustrated detail, assess indications and contraindications, offer guidelines on preoperative planning, and discuss outcomes, complications, and follow-up.
Coverage includes breast biopsy; lymph node mapping and dissection; partial mastectomy; mastectomy; extensive resections; breast reconstruction; and a significant oncoplastics section. Each chapter in each section focuses on one procedure.
A companion website will offer the fully searchable content of the book, an image bank plus procedural videos.
