Today, multidisciplinary approaches to treatment are at the heart of cancer care. They offer improved clinical outcomes, new possibilities in patient quality of life, and enable the development of true innovation in individualized treatment. To accurately reflect this modern day approach to cancer care, the content of the 6th edition of Principles And Practice Of Gynecologic Oncology was written entirely by surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists. New to the editorial team, Dr. Andrew Berchuck has made significant contributions to the understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of ovarian and endometrial cancer in the book's content. Every chapter of this book has been either completely rewritten or extensively updated to ensure that everyone involved in treating women with gynecologic cancer will have the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the subject. Traditionally available as a printed textbook, now it comes with a completely revamped digital experience, powered by Inkling!
