This addition to the acclaimed Mastery of Surgery series is the standard-setting text/atlas on all endoscopic and laparoscopic surgical procedures. The book is authored by the world's masters of this technology, who share their firsthand operative experience, emphasizing decision-making and focusing on the anatomy and key steps in the operations. The comprehensive coverage includes minimally invasive operative procedures in all of general surgery, plus selected surgical subspecialty procedures that a surgical resident may need to learn. Of special note is the inclusion of flexible (diagnostic) endoscopy with operative endoscopic/laparoscopic procedures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference. May 3, 2001
By A Kid
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive text covering all of the evergrowing list of procedures that can be done laparoscopically. The bibliography of contributing authors is filled with established experts and the editors are well recognized as pioneers in the field of minimally invasive surgery. Each chapter is filled with useful descriptions of the various procedures and is accompanied by accurate sketches. I think everyone is usually frustrated by the appearance of actual laparoscopic pictures due to their poor quality upon reproduction, but this book has seemingly found a way to circumvent that degradation because it is filled with actual laparascopic pictures that you can identify. Each chapter is followed by helpful suggestions and comments from the editors. As a second-year resident, I have found this book very helpful in outlining the advanced laparoscopic procedures prior to actually performing the procedure in the OR. It should prove useful to all surgical residents as well as practicing surgeons looking to increase their laparoscopic repertoire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Following the Excellence of Nyhus' Mastery of Surgery December 5, 2001
This is an excellent textbook of Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures, containing eight sections of great interest to all of us, surgeons practicing both endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery.
Minimal access surgery has revolutionized and revitalized general surgery. The extent and range of minimal access surgery has been extended over the past 5 years, although a number of controversial areas remain. The reader of this outstanding textbook will learn various techniques in minimal access surgery, providing evidence of the importance of this new modality. Contemporary controversies, such as laparoendoscopic surgery for large and small bowel (including neoplastic disease), are discussed.
I encourage all general surgeons to read this book and experience the future's surgery, today!
