MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This richly illustrated guide provides a detailed
step-by-step description of the operative techniques employed in selective and
radical neck dissection. The authors share the lessons of their extensive
experience, giving precise surgical instructions specific to these procedures.
Actual intraoperative photos, in combination with high-quality drawings, are
used to explain all the essential steps. Anatomic variations are discussed and practical
pearls and pitfalls, highlighted.

 

Neck dissection is an integral part of the
management of patients with head and neck cancer. The complexity of the head
and neck region makes this procedure an inherently delicate undertaking for
surgeons from different specialties who treat head and neck cancer. This book will
be an essential resource for trainees and practicing surgeons in the fields of
head and neck surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, reconstructive surgery,
and oncologic surgery.​
