This is a useful book on the increasingly important transoral approach to tumours of the head and neck. The authors, who are well known US experts in the field, have produced a colourful textbook with current, well-illustrated, information on all aspects of transoral surgery... Excellent artistic illustrations and intraoperative pictures provide a great perspective and appreciation of the inside-out anatomical concept. The importance of instrumentation, including laser microsurgery and robotic surgery, is heavily emphasised throughout... The applications of transoral surgery to all sites of the upper aerodigestive tract are presented in an evidence-based manner with an adequate number of references for further reading... The print quality is good... and the interior boasts fine glossy paper, with high resolution pictures throughout. Readers can access a companion website, with video footage of transoral surgery techniques for various head and neck primary cancer sites. Overall, this is a good textbook on the technical aspects of transoral surgery. It is easy to read with a good explanation of the anatomical and functional aspects of this increasingly popular approach. -- Mr. Panos Asimakopoulos MRCS, ST5 ENT and Mr. Kim Ah-See MD FRCS FRCS(ORL-HNS), ENT Consultant, Aberdeen Royal infirmary, in Journal of Laryngology and Otology, (Spring 2015); "This excellent book focuses on the technical aspects of transoral surgery with a particular emphasis on transoral laser microsurgery.The authors are highly accomplished surgeons and authoritative figures in transoral surgery with experience in thousands of cases. The book has excellent illustrations and operative images that should be useful to those relearning inside-out anatomy. Overall, this is an excellent resource on transoral surgical techniques, and it should quickly become the definitive resource on transoral laser microsurgery. 4 Stars!" -- John David Cramer, M.D. Doody's Review Service
