About this book

This book provides a concise summary across all aspects of endocrine surgery, covering the major endocrine organs and discussing aspects of surgical care. It comprises five sections covering the major endocrine organs/systems, each with a specialist section editor. Within each section there are a number of brief (2-3 page) chapters, written in a combination of prose and bullet points, a format that is conducive to both detailed reading and quicker, “dipping in”, review. Each chapter contains a “Pearls and Pitfalls” summary box. The text takes into account the latest evidence and current expert opinion from an internationally renowned list of authors.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This comprehensive, yet concise, review of endocrine surgery is presented in an easy-to-read bullet-point format, supplemented by tables and illustrations. … The book will be useful to both practicing surgeons and trainees involved in the management of patients with endocrine surgical diseases. The format will be particularly appealing to senior residents and fellows in surgery, otolaryngology, and neurosurgery looking for up-to-date information on diseases and techniques in preparation for cases during their rotations. … a useful addition to the field of endocrine surgery.” (Geeta Lal, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
