This is a new reference edited by two leading authorities in the field of minimally invasive surgery that differentiates itself from other similar titles by providing a stronger emphasis on incorporating newer technologies. The book discussed the incorporation of flexible endoscopy into surgical practice, harvesting the expertise of gastroenterologists and surgical endoscopists. It also discusses minimally invasive operative procedures such as laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy.
