Reviews

From the reviews:

“This compact book on endocrine surgery is derived from a large, two-volume comprehensive textbook on general surgery … . it offers a number of short, concise, meaty chapters with up-to-date information about the pathologic entities encountered during surgery of the endocrine system. … The book is written for both trainees and general surgeons who encounter endocrine problems as part of their practice. … This is compact and reasonably priced. It does a nice job of summarizing important and potentially confusing information.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2012)

“This white coat book reviews in 8 chapters some of the most common endocrine tumors: thyroid cancer, hyperparathyroidism, adrenal tumors. … Illustrated with tables and references it is a well written and easy readable text. Mainly for residents.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 9 (2), December, 2011)
