Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an outstanding compilation of topics by leading experts in the field of surgical diseases of the pancreas. … I would recommend this to any surgical resident or practicing surgeon with an interest in pancreatic disease. In addition, gastroenterologists, pathologists, and even radiologists with an interest in pancreatic disease would find this helpful. What sets this book apart from others is the current, up-to-date information that is presented and, most importantly, the figures, tables, and artwork." (Joseph J Cullen, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2008)

"This comprehensive yet concise book focuses on the surgical treatment of diseases of the pancreas and was edited by three leaders in the field from three continents. The book, therefore, has a stamp of authority. … this book will occupy an important place on my bookshelf. … I am sure that it will be of major interest not only to specialists in pancreatic disease but also to generalists, trainees, and ancillary staff who care for patients with diseases of the pancreas." (Dileep N. Lobo, The New England Journal of Medicine, August, 2008)
