Product description

First written by Philip Stell and Arnold Maran in 1972, Stell & Maran's Textbook of Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology has been revised in both content and approach over the years to reflect the enormous progress made in the area. Now in its fifth edition, the book remains a key textbook for trainees in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. Written with a strong multidisciplinary approach, the book has expanded considerably to include the expertise of international editors and contributing authors from a wide variety of backgrounds, including ENT, radiotherapy, plastic surgery, and maxillofacial surgery. Key Features: * An international team of editors and contributors from a variety of different specialties * Thoroughly updated to include recent advances in molecular biology and diagnostic imaging * A greatly expanded section on reconstruction to reflect the importance of this area * An improved balance of content to enhance the multidisciplinary approach * Full-colour photos and illustrations throughout As a first text for trainee head and neck and ENT surgeons or as a reference source for practitioners in a variety of related fields, Stell & Maran's Textbook of Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology remains the best-illustrated and most up-to-date volume in its field.

Review quote

"It is a bigger and better book than its predecessor... the entire book is well organized ... plenty of colourful pictures, diagrams, tables, summary, and key point boxes." -The Journal of Laryngology & Otology "The fifth edition has been worth the wait and shall remain an essential first text and reference book for trainee head and neck surgeons the world over. It is clearly written and is an excellent resource for every trainee's library." -ENT News " ... beautifully illustrated throughout with colour clinical photographs, excellent line diagrams, and appropriate imaging. ... The section on non surgical treatments such as chemo and radiotherapy and biological targeting was particularly good and relatively easy to read!" -P.A. Brennan, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, UK, British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
