Laparoscopy in Surgical Oncology is intended to give the practicing surgeon or trainee an in-depth analysis of the technical aspects, their indications, contraindications, and complications of all current minimally invasive procedures in surgical oncology. In little more than a decade, laparoscopic procedures have revolutionized surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is the treatment of choice for most upper GI operations for benign disease, but the trend toward laparoscopic surgery in malignancies has been slower and more controversial. Cancer surgery, however, poses some unique challenges that make the application of minimally invasive surgery in oncology more problematic. Laparoscopy in Surgical Oncology brings together a group of European and N American contributors, all experts in their field, to provide a text for specialists and trainees. This book covers all current key topics within the area of minimally invasive procedures in oncology.
Theodore N. Pappas, MD, is the vice dean for medical affairs at the Duke University School of Medicine. He also holds the positions of Distinguished Professor of Duke Minimally Invasive Surgery and vice chairman for administration in the Department of Surgery; and assistant medical director for the Duke faculty practice (PDC).
