Product description

Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities. This is a title in the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series whose eight volumes are an established and highly regarded source of information for the specialist general surgeon.

Review quote

***2010 BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended - Surgical specialties category*** "This book has excellent illustrations. The colour pictures now lie in the appropriate section of the text, rather than in a separate section. There is now a two-level system for the evidence base, one for 'strong recommendation' and one for 'expert opinion'. "Judges comments" "This is an updated edition on hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery in a series of well-written and well-referenced books. This book is a concise, useful and up to date source of information for speciality registrars and practising consultants in the field of hepato-pancreatico-biliary surgery. It might be particularly useful for junior trainees with little or no HPB exposure who wish to come up to speed quickly with the sub-speciality."
