The journal European Surgery focuses on general surgery, endocrine surgery, thoracic surgery, heart and vascular surgery. Special features include new surgical and endoscopic techniques such as minimally invasive surgery, robot surgery, and advances in surgery-related biotechnology and surgical oncology.
The journal especially addresses benign and malignant esophageal diseases, i.e. achalasia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, and esophageal adenocarcinoma. In keeping with modern healthcare requirements, the journal’s scope includes inter- and multidisciplinary disease management (diagnosis, therapy and surveillance).
The journal is a powerful instrument for bringing up-to-date scientific information to specialized surgery units at general hospitals. European Surgery presents original articles, reviews, case reports, and short communications on developments in surgical practice and research.
