Description

While this text is multi-disciplinary, it is written by head and neck surgeons with a primary focus on the surgical aspects of treatment for otolaryngologists and trainees.

More than 52,000 head and neck cancers are diagnosed each year in the US alone. The leading causes of these cancers include tobacco and alcohol use and infections with HPV. Treatment usually involves surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, which involves a team of physicians from each of these areas.

Generally considered a definitive and classic reference in the field, this book provides comprehensive coverage of everything from basic science to treatment and rehabilitation.
