Here's the leading resource on endocrine surgery-fully revised and updated in a New Edition! It examines disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands as well as neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract. Leading authorities from around the world discuss diagnosis, localization, intraoperative management, and surgical therapy for the full range of endocrine conditions.

Key Features

  • Considers etiology, embryology, anatomy, clinical manifestations, and diagnostic and localization procedures as well as surgical and other treatment modalities for the full range of endocrine disorders.
  • Reviews rationales, pre-operative considerations, operative techniques, and post-operative treatment for each procedure ... as well as the benefits, risks, controversial issues, and cost-effectiveness of each approach.
  • Makes complex information easy to understand with more than 500 line drawings and photographs.
