About this book

This book provides an educational resource of modern and advanced operative techniques for patients with GI cancers. The textbook is designed to provide a step-by-step surgical approach, highlighting key learning points and potential operative pitfalls. When appropriate, two or more different approaches on an operative procedure are presented to provide additional perspective on surgical techniques. Written descriptions of laparoscopic and robotic cancer operations are paired with online video presentations of the same cancer operation.

Written by experts in the field, Surgery for Cancers of the Gastrointestinal Tract: A Step-by-Step Approach provides a concise summary of the current management of each GI cancer and is of great utility to not only surgeons at all levels of training, but also for surgeons in practice who seek to reinforce or learn new surgical techniques.

Reviews

“This is a concise and brief compendium of many techniques in this chosen field of surgery for gastrointestinal tumors. In this area, it may prove a useful resource. … more appropriate to more advanced learners such as surgical oncology fellows and/or fully trained surgeons. … The best parts of this book are the accompanying videos, which are available primarily for the minimally invasive procedures.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
