This book describes in detail three different techniques for minimally invasive video-assisted breast surgery: nipple-sparing mastectomy with a hand-held external retractor, with a single-port device, and with robotic assistance. All three techniques can be employed for radical treatment of breast cancer or for risk reduction surgery, and the last two are brand new. The techniques are clearly explained with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. All surgical stages are covered in detail, and helpful information is provided on key aspects of surgical anatomy, diagnostic workup, instrumentation, and postoperative management. Nipple Sparing Mastectomy is the first manual to cover these techniques, which are likely to become standard in the field of oncological breast surgery. It will be invaluable for breast surgeons who are skilled in nipple-sparing mastectomy and oncoplastic techniques or are working in breast units that offer genetic counseling to high-risk patients.

From the reviews:
"This book describes the development and scientific evidence in support of minimally invasive nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM). ... It is aimed at surgeons performing oncologic surgery for breast cancer, and the level of detail is appropriate for this audience. ... There is very little published in this area, so this book can be useful to surgeons seeking a resource for these techniques." (Ingrid M. Lizarraga, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2014)
