Roy Sessions, MD, is a well-known, respected head and neck surgeon who has added a great deal to the literature about treating cancer patients, including a seminal paper on medial maxillectomy for inverting papilloma (Arch Otolaryngol. 1977;103:195-202). Now in partial retirement, Dr. Sessions has written The Cancer Experience: The Doctor, the Patient, the Journey (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2012)—a book not about protocols or surgical techniques of treating patients with head and neck cancer, but about taking the holistic approach to patients with cancer, from psychological, moral and religious perspectives.
