New York, NY, January 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Despite significant progress in the treatment of head and neck cancer using new techniques, including organ preservation strategies, recurrence still occurs in up to 50% of patients with locally advanced disease. “Head and Neck Cancer Recurrence,” recently published by Thieme, is the first comprehensive, evidence-based reference on this complex condition, providing state-of-the-art strategies for treating and managing recurrence at each site within the head and neck.
With this book at hand, specialists will have guidelines for detecting the presence of a tumor, evaluating the extent and likelihood of successful salvage, determining the most effective treatment modalities, and assessing the potential impact on outcome and function.
The combination of the most recent clinical advances with the latest thinking in the field makes this book an essential resource for all head and neck surgeons, clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, allied health professionals and senior trainees working to improve patient management and outcomes in this challenging arena.
