Beginning with the scientific basis of tumors, 'The Surgery of Childhood Tumors' provides up-to-date information on epidemiology, cytogenetics and molecular biology, before looking at current treatments, integrating surgery, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy when indicated. A chapter on counselling reflects the book's holistic approach to treating children with cancer. Each chapter is written by a world-renowned authority on pediatric cancer, and has an international flavor drawn from the major children's cancer classification group for the UK, Europe and the US. Contributors discuss geographical variations in treatment for each type of tumor. Excellent full-colour pictures and detailed line drawings illustrate all aspects of managing childhood tumours, including technical details of operation which are often much neglected in other texts. This comprehensive book provides a contemporary approach for pediatric, general and urological surgeons dealing with childhood tumors. New chapters in this 2nd edition provide the latest developments and strategies in pediatric surgical oncology.
