This book comprehensively covers minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques suitable for use in abdominal operations. Chapters describe relevant techniques for abdominal wall reconstruction, esophageal, bariatric, hepatobiliary, and colorectal surgery. Detailed step-by-step procedural guidance is provided with relevant photographic illustrations.
Techniques in Minimally Invasive Surgery is a vital resource for surgeons who perform minimally invasive gastrointestinal operations. The book is particularly addressed to trainees, fellows, and junior faculty.
