Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This multi-author book has been championed by the authors who are from Berlin and New York respectively. It is probably the most comprehensive book on staging laparoscopy. . The strength of the book is the wealth of collated experience from dedicated surgical oncologists and their multi-disciplinary teams. . The information presented in this book is the best we have. Those surgeons running mainly GIT oncological practices should read it and try to apply what is relevant to their practices." (D. B. Bizos, SAJS - South African Journal of Surgery, Vol. 41 (3), 2003)
