Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors have nicely pulled together basic principles (including molecular biology) as well as surgical techniques and produced a compact yet meaty book. It is written for endocrine surgeons in practice and in training. The secondary audience of endocrinologists, radiologists, and pathologists dealing with these patients will also find it a welcome reference. The editors are credible authorities who have enlisted a stellar group of chapter authors, each extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields." (Carol EH Scott-Conner, Doody's Review Service, August, 2007)
