Reviews

“The purpose is to provide a valuable review of video‐assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and robotic approaches to lung and esophageal cancers. It is a worthwhile objective and the book will be useful for surgeons new to these approaches. The intended audience includes thoracic surgery residents as well as those looking to expand their practice to include VATS and robotic approaches for lung and esophageal cancer.” (Nathan Zwintscher, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
