Liver Cancer, the inaugural volume in the M.D. Anderson Solid Tumor Oncology series, provides the general surgeon, surgical oncologist, and medical oncologist with the most up-to-date and current standard of multimodality care for hepatobiliary cancer. Surgical approaches, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, gene therapy, and radiotherapy are all presented, giving the practitioner a much needed, comprehensive perspective on all aspects of patient care. The MD Anderson Solid Tumor Oncology series features cutting-edge, indepth information of vital interest to all practitioners in today's captitated financial milieu. Providers must understand how their component of care interdigitates with the varied medical and surgical teams and apply multimodality approaches to their practice environments.
