Reviews

“This book presents a comprehensive approach to extrahepatic biliary disease including uncommon pathology not often covered in other books. The material is approachable due to interspersed illustrations and graphs. Uncommon pathology is nicely displayed with a mix of high-quality intraoperative images, fluoroscopic cholangiograms, and fluoroscopic ERCP images. … This book serves as wonderful introduction to biliary disease for residents, an excellent reference for practicing general surgeons, and a nice quick reference for hepatobiliary specialists.” (Brian R. Mooersm, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2018)
