"This is a must-have for anyone who practices hepatopancreaticobiliary surgery.

The audience is broad -- from medical students to residents to fellows to junior faculty surgeons to experienced hepatobiliary surgeons. This is an important contribution because of the paucity of instructional books in this field and because it is written and produced by one of the fathers of hepatobiliary surgery, Dr. Leslie Blumgart. The meticulous nature of the videos is the highlight. The procedures are performed by Dr. Blumgart with careful narration and high-yield advice for those preparing to perform these operations. It is enjoyable to watch this master at work." -James J Mezhir, MD(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics),
