Over the course of the last decade, the treatment of breast cancer has evolved quite rapidly. New scientific and clinical advances have modified the standard of care and led to improved patient outcomes. At the same time, the treatment of breast cancer has become increasingly complex, requiring the comprehensive review and assessment of multiple issues, genetics, radiology, surgery, reconstruction, fertility radiation, chemotherapy, and more. As a result the harmony and open communication between these specialties facilitated by a multidisciplinary team approach are crucial in providing the best care to patients and ensuring successful treatment. Breast Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Diagnosis and Management, written by a multidisciplinary team of authors representing a range of disciplines, is a valuable resource for physicians, fellows, nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, and all health care providers involved in the treatment of breast cancer. Breast Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Diagnosis and Management summarizes the state-of-the-art issues related to the treatment of breast cancer and describes an approach for optimal multidisciplinary care for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or who are at higher risk to develop breast cancer.
