About the Book

The endocrine system is a complex group of glands that make hormones. The endocrine glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, pituatary, adrenal, and hypothalamus, as well as the pancreas, ovaries, and testes.

The endocrine glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary, and hypothalamus, as well as the pancreas, ovaries, and testes.

While there are a few thorough textbooks on the topic of endocrine surgery, there are no small handbooks that allow quick reference of key information, including diagnostic tables and management algorithms. Every general surgeon needs to be able to perform endocrine surgery since the endocrine system travels throughout the body. This handy guide fills the gap in our surgery list by providing ready, detailed, and accessible information on endocrine surgical procedures. It also serves to compliment AccessSurgery.com by including easy-to-access tables, algorithms, and bulleted and formatted information.

This pocket-sized manual will feature contributors from every major endocrine department in the US, as well as a number from Canada and Australia. They are primarily fellows, thereby creating the unique perspective of continuing to learn while teaching residents.
