Reviews

From the reviews:

“This new endocrine surgery book comprehensively covers both the fundamentals as well as most current aspects of the field. … It is targeted primarily at endocrine surgeons and general surgeons or residents with a particular interest in endocrine surgery. … endocrinologists, radiologists, or nuclear medicine physicians would also find the book useful. … The chapters are well written and enjoyable to read. … The liberal use of images and color figures adds tremendously to the text and distinguishes this book.” (Sonia L. Sugg, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)

“This comprehensive review of the current literature and practice in endocrine surgery takes the time to describe procedural processes necessary to perform the current surgical therapies. … This book is highly informative for developing residents and a great review for practicing surgeons. … This is a well written book that will benefit those in training and keep those in practice up to date with the latest advances in the field.” (Julie Cupp, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2012)
