Textbook of Endocrine Surgery

by Clark Orlo H, Duh Quan-Yang, Kebebew Electron, Gosnell Jessica E, Shen Wen T

Endocrine surgery is a surgical subspecialty focusing on surgery of the endocrine glands, including the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands, the adrenal glands, glands of the endocrine pancreas, and some neuroendocrine glands. When surveying the dizzying array of operative approaches, imaging studies, and biochemical and genetic tests that have become routine components of the endocrine surgeon’s armamentarium, it is easy for one to forget that this is still a nascent surgical specialty. This third edition of Textbook of Endocrine Surgery aims to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of burgeoning and continually changing field. All of the existing chapters of previous editions have been reviewed and updated, and many new chapters have been added to reflect advancements in the field. This book is divided into 4 sections and comprises of total 109 chapter. The first section covers a broad discussion on thyroid whereas the focus of the second section is to cover parathyroid. The third section aims to cover adrenal gland and the last section of this book discusses on endocrine pancreas.
