Reviews

From the reviews:

“In this volume, readers are presented with a comprehensive analysis of the fine-points of kidney and pancreas transplantation. This collaborative effort by the physicians and surgeons of the transplant division at the Cleveland Clinic offers readers a complete summary of surgical intervention as it pertains to kidney and pancreas surgery. … This volume is notable because it paints a practical face on this ever-evolving sub-specialty, offering transplant surgeons and clinicians … the latest available data on kidney and pancreas transplant procedures.” (John Aiello, The Electric Review, January, 2011)

“This comprehensive review of the field of kidney and pancreatic transplantation covers everything from donor and recipient workup and outcomes to immunosuppression to appropriate anesthesia management of patients. … Fellows and practitioners who take care of transplant patients are the intended audience. … This well-written book covers kidney and pancreatic transplantation from a variety of perspectives. It is an excellent resource for anyone who takes care of these patients.” (Jason R. Wellen, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)

“The Cleveland Clinic Transplant Center has world-class experts in all areas of transplantation and most of them were involved in this textbook … . All medical and surgical aspects of kidney and pancreas transplantation were described exhaustively, in association with various other aspects. … Economic aspects of transplantation concluded the textbook. Undoubtedly this outstanding textbook, richly illustrated, will be useful to all physicians, whether they are certified or in-training, or involved in either kidney or pancreas transplantations.” (European Urology Today, June/July, 2011)
