Textbook of Endocrine Surgery, Third Edition, is the latest edition of this
highly illustrated, comprehensive guide. Edited by professors from the University
of California, San Francisco, this authoritative textbook covers surgical procedures
for a broad range of endocrine conditions.
Comprised of four sections, divided into 81 chapters, this book examines disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as neuroendocrine tumours of the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract. All chapters have been extensively revised and updated, and many new chapters have been added to this edition to reflect recent advances in the field.
This book provides up to date information on aetiology, embryology, anatomy, clinical manifestations, diagnostic and localisation procedures, surgical and other treatment modalities for endocrine disorders. Enhanced by 550 full colour images and illustrations, Textbook of Endocrine Surgery is an invaluable resource for surgeons and endocrinologists.
