About this book

This book brings together recognized experts in the field to describe their current techniques for the surgical treatment of diseased thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, as well as neuroendocrine tumors of small bowel, pancreas, liver, and skin. For each procedure, indications, operative steps, potential pitfalls and complications, and postoperative management are presented. The clear descriptions coupled with informative and beautiful illustrations will give the reader new perspectives and insights into the anatomy and conduct of these procedures.

Endocrine surgery has been an area of special interest to surgeons for well over a century, while the increasing incidence of neuroendocrine tumors has more recently led to greater attention to these neoplasms. Significant advances have been made in a variety of areas, the most recent being the introduction of minimally invasive methods of removing diseased glands, and the improved understanding of the natural history of neuroendocrine tumors. 

Keywords

Reviews

“This book will be of use to students, residents, nonsurgeon physicians, and nurses. Anyone with an interest in caring for patients with endocrine and neuroendocrine tumors will find this a must read. … Among the available books … this one is among the best. It presents the material in a way that’s easy to follow and is a complete reference on the topic. It is both a great reference on the pathophysiology of the conditions and an atlas for surgeons.” (Steven K. Libutti, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2018)
