The third edition of Textbook of Endocrine Surgery aims to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of the burgeoning and continually changing field of endocrine surgery. Over 150 authorities in the fields of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, and endocrine pancreas disciplines lend their expertise to this thoroughly updated volume. This book details:
- The explosion of new techniques and technologies, including widespread use of intraoperative parathyroid hormone measurement to facilitate focused parathyroidectomy
- The introduction of novel minimally invasive and robotic approaches to cervical and retroperitoneal tumors
- The development of molecular testing to more accurately characterize indeterminate thyroid nodules
All the existing chapters of the previous edition have been reviewed and updated, and many new chapters have been added to reflect advancements in the field. With the inclusion of color images and new tables, Textbook of Endocrine Surgery is the complete go-to guide for all questions and theories regarding endocrine surgery.
