  • Includes a wealth of strategies and techniques for maximizing local control while preserving cosmetic outcome in breast-conservation therapy
  • Addresses the issue of central lumpectomy with resection of the nipple-areolar complex and reconstruction of the remaining breast mound
  • Presents the Veronesi quadrantectomy approach to breast-conservation therapy with sentinel lymph node biopsy
  • Discusses total mastectomy, skin-sparing mastectomy and the emerging technology of nipple-sparing mastectomy, as well as modified radical mastectomy and full axillary lymphadenectomy
