Review

Surgical Oncology -- "Principles and Practice is widely accepted to have a pedigree as one of the most comprehensive books in this field. It has been thoroughly revised for its fifth edition. With specific regard to the surgeon there is a very good chapter on the princples of surgical therapy written by some of the big names of North American Paediatric Surgery. This reaffirms the importance of the 'Paediatric Surgical Oncologist', and nicely covers the principles of surgery. There is an excellent discussion on the risks of anaesthesia for anterior mediastinal masses with a clear algorithm for pre-operative investigations to assess the risk and provide a guide to the safest method of biopsy. The main appeal of this book, however, is the fact that the surgeon can easily find detailed information on such things as tumour markers, diagnosis, In summary the book covers all aspects of children's cancer in detail. This book is an excellent reference text and would form the cornerstone of knowledge for a busy paediatric surgical oncologist."

Format: Hardcover
This textbook is not intended for physicians who are not, at the very least, specialists in oncology (not for general medicine, surgery, or pediatrics specialists). Moreso than a medical reference, however, this book is an excellent resource for clinical researchers in the field. It covers not only the clinical information for many forms of pediatric cancer (I was thrilled to discover such rarities as JMML included), but also treatment regimens, molecular and cell biology, and even pharmacology. If you are searching for a textbook that will tie together basic science with medicine, this is an excellent resource - but it does require background in both subjects.

This is the text to own if you want an overview of pediatric oncology. Thorough, in-depth, practical, with basic science issues covered. Written by (most of) the leaders in the field. A must own for anyone who sees children with cancer.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very detailed and evidence based book for pediatric hem/onc staff, fellows or CNPs. Would not recommend it for light reading for general pediatricians since goes into far too much detail.
