Overview
The idea for the Surgical Oncology Manual was generated by the general surgical oncology fellows at the University of Toronto. The Surgical Oncology Manual reflects the current approach to the management of surgical oncology in General Surgery at the University of Toronto. The manual outlines the essential elements of diagnosis, staging, and clinical management of solid tumors treated in surgical practice within the context of the Canadian healthcare system. The authors emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary treatment planning, including referral to multidisciplinary cancer conferences and to other specialties. The manual addresses the following topics: o Tumours of the Adrenal Gland o Ampullary Cancer o Anal Cancer o Breast Cancer o Cholangiocarcinoma o Colon Cancer o Colorectal Liver Metastases o Cutaneous Melanoma o Gallbladder Cancer o Gastric Adenocarcinoma o Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumours o Hepatocellular Carcinoma o Multidisciplinary Cancer Conferences o Neuroendocrine Tumours (GastroEnteroPancreatic) o Palliative Surgical Care o Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreas o Peritoneal Surface Malignancies o Rectal Cancer o Retroperitoneal and Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcomas o Thyroid Cancer The target audience for this book includes medical students, general surgery residents, fellows and practicing general surgeons. The manual was written in such a way that it focuses on patient care and provides a step by step approach as to how the patient should be clinically managed. Each chapter includes " Toronto Pearls" in the management of each malignancy, and provides guidance regarding how clinicians at the University of Toronto manage cancer. An extensive review of the literature was completed and is included in the reference list. The manual also includes seminal papers that must be familiar to anyone dealing with cancer patients.

The manual outlines the essential elements of diagnosis, staging, and clinical management of solid tumors treated in surgical practice within the context of the Canadian healthcare system. The authors emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary treatment planning, including referral to multidisciplinary cancer conferences and to other specialties. The manual addresses the following topics: o Tumours of the Adrenal Gland o Ampullary Cancer o Anal Cancer o Breast Cancer o Cholangiocarcinoma o Colon Cancer o Colorectal Liver Metastases o Cutaneous Melanoma o Gallbladder Cancer o Gastric Adenocarcinoma o Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumours o Hepatocellular Carcinoma o Multidisciplinary Cancer Conferences o Neuroendocrine Tumours (GastroEnteroPancreatic) o Palliative Surgical Care o Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreas o Peritoneal Surface Malignancies o Rectal Cancer o Retroperitoneal and Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcomas o Thyroid Cancer The target audience for this book includes medical students, general surgery residents, fellows and practicing general surgeons.

Key papers in each oncologic subspecialty and their outcomes are summarized in tables for easy reference. Although there are similar books available in nature to this manual, the Surgical Oncology Manual provides a more practical and evidence based approach to patient management, that is easy to use and read.
