This collection of chapters describes in detail the latest insights into the evaluation of resectability and neoadjuvant therapy to pancreaticoduodenectomy and distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic cancer. Shedding light on immunotherapy and gene therapy, this volume comprehensively covers treatments and procedures for the disease, allowing surgeons and trainees to gain an overview and explore innovative treatments. It also provides information on various cases using tools such as endoscopic ultrasound, MDCT, PET for diagnosis and laparoscopy and robotic resection methods. 
Edited and authored by pioneering professionals, Diagnosis and Treatment for Pancreatic Cancer is a valuable resource for gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologist and general surgeons interested in treatment of pancreatic cancer care.

Editorial Reviews

"This monograph presents a mainly non-North American approach to pancreatic cancer. . It appears that the book will primarily be of interest and use to subspecialists for whom pancreatic resection for carcinoma is a routine part of practice. . This is one of many books in this field. As a review of techniques being investigated in other parts of the world, it may be of interest to specialists." (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2017)
