Book Description

May 16, 2011 1451105452 978-1451105452 Ninth, North American Edition
DeVita, Hellman, and Rosenberg's Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology has been acclaimed by the worldwide medical community as the standard-setting oncology reference. Its primary goal is to present the practicing oncologist with the practical as well as cutting-edge information needed to ensure the best possible care for each individual patient. The hallmark of this book from its inception and a major reason it has gained worldwide acceptance as the definitive source of cancer information has been its approach to the treatment of cancer patients by stage of presentation with a tightly coordinated description of the role of each treatment modality in the care of individual patients. To ensure a balance multidisciplinary approach, a surgeon, a medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist author each of the major treatment chapters. Each of the major treatment sections is preceded by an updated, brief chapter describing the molecular biology of that cancer and the prospects this new information holds for the improved management of cancer patients. Greater emphasis has been given in recent editions to the increasing importance of molecular biology and cancer screening and prevention, as well as palliative care, supportive oncology and quality of life issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING !!! February 29, 2012
By Dev
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had purchased this book after going through an old 5th edition in my university Library.I should say till date this ranks one among my best Buys Ever. I would recommend this book to all those who plan a career in Oncology or Onco-Surgery. The subject materiel covered is certainly vast, very well put together though a tad excessive on the quotes of studies and statistics done which could have been shifted to the e-content. Chapter wise coverage of the different types of malignancies was excellent and gives you 360 degree management perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, updated March 10, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As usual, the standard for cancer textbooks. I'm sure there are things it lacks, but I haven't found them. Covers clinical and background information on cancer and its treatment at a depth needed by health professionals.
