Endocrine surgery is a relatively new speciality but it has at last been accepted in its own right. The system of glands that secrete hormones internally, directly into the lymph nodes or bloodstream, was recognised as a holistic endocrine system, and surgeons appreciated the need to work closely with other specialists – biochemists, pathologists, radiologists – in order to optimise treatment and carry out successful surgery. “Endocrine Surgery Made Easy” is an outstanding text and reference manual for both trainees and practising surgeons. The format of the content is designed with “questions and answers' in order to measure and improve the understanding of the reader. It is divided into 5 sections – Thyroid Disorders, (Benign and Malignant), Parathyroid Disorders, Adrenal Disorders, Endocrine Pancreas Disorders, and Other Endocrine Disorders – made up of a total of 69 chapters. A free CD Rom contains the photographs of the case studies in the book. Written by a highly experienced endocrine surgeon, who draws upon many years of treatment and teaching, this book will be read by senior surgical students, general surgeons, endocrine trainees and specialist endocrine surgeons.
