An Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology, Third Edition covers the innovative techniques on the brink of becoming established as part of the gynecologic surgeon’s repertoire.


"As an oncology trainee, I feel the book will become an invaluable resource to refer to, particularly when receiving patients from (and referring to) colleagues in surgery … It is hugely relevant and extremely useful for the trainee clinical oncologist. It is good to see that the content has been thoroughly updated since the previous edition … with the important papers complementing those historical accounts that still apply … The illustrations are probably the main area that set the book apart." Highly Commended, 2012 BMA Medical Books Awards (reviewer's comments)
