The Surgery of Childhood Tumors, Hardback Book

The Surgery of Childhood Tumors Hardback

Edited by Robert Carachi, Jay L. Grosfeld



Beginning with the scientific basis of tumors, this book provides up-to-date information on epidemiology, cytogenetics, and molecular biology, before examining current treatments for the full range of pediatric tumors.

Integration of surgery, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiation therapy is a dominant theme.

In addition, chapters on supportive care, palliative care, and the role of parents' associations reflect the book's holistic approach.

All chapters are written by world-renowned international authorities on pediatric cancer from major children's cancer groups.

Excellent full-color pictures and line drawings illustrate all aspects of managing childhood tumors, including details of operative techniques neglected in many other texts.

This comprehensive book, expanded and updated to encompass the very latest developments and strategies, provides a contemporary approach for pediatric, general, and urological surgeons dealing with childhood tumors.
