 Surgery  Comments Off on Laparoscopic Surgery: Key Points, Operating Room Setup and Equipment
Mar 302018
 

This book is distinctive in that it is a truly practical guide to use of the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of many abdominal diseases. Rather than simply offering a general description of surgical laparoscopic techniques, it provides the knowledge required in order to introduce basic laparoscopic procedures into daily practice or to commence advanced laparoscopic surgery. For each surgical procedure, key points are highlighted, the necessary equipment is described, and the operating room setup essential to avoid errors or loss of time is explained. Many flow charts, tables, and figures are included to assist fast and intuitive comprehension. The book will be of interest to all of the “actors” in the operating room, including especially surgeons in training, established surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists.

This book will be useful to the spinal surgeon of any experience level who is interested in optimizing their care for patients with symptomatic spinal deformity.

Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology

 Medical Atlas, Oncology, Surgery  Comments Off on Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology
Mar 272018
 

This volume is the product of the author’s long experience with melanomas and sarcomas and to a lesser but significant degree with upper gastrointestinal cancers, colorectal and breast cancers. As such, it offers a “hands-on” practical guide to approaching complex soft-tissue tumors and for performing more extensive tumor resections based on over 40 years of surgical experience. It provides important details about the positioning of patients, incision types, and exposure which can be of paramount importance in the resection of certain tumors. The book contains important general surgical principles for approaching tumors in a variety of locations but also offers the detail necessary for the safe and oncologically sound resection of these malignancies. Moreover, this operative atlas contains specific information for procedures which are not as commonly encountered in surgical training, but can be invaluable in the management of patients with locally aggressive tumors, such as hemipelvectomy and its variants, sacral resections, and forequarter amputation.

Through the use of multiple detailed illustrations, Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology serves as a valuable resource to the general surgeon or surgical oncologist in the operative management of patients with cancer in the abdomen, retroperitoneum, pelvis or extremities.

Mar 262018
 

This text provides a clear, reproducible, step-by-step guide for each colorectal surgery operation. The format follows that of both a “how to” manual as well as an algorithm-based guide to allow the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategy. Each chapter includes both operative technical details as well as perioperative “tips and tricks” that the authors utilize in the management of these complex surgical patients. In addition, it addresses the optimal “next step” in dealing with more challenging situations such as pregnancy, emergent surgery, the elderly, and the obese patient. Throughout the text, each author provides an ongoing narrative of his/her individual surgical techniques along with color illustrations and diagrams to “personally” take the reader through the crucial steps of the procedure, as well as key points of patient care inherent to that topic. Additionally, where appropriate, links to online or downloadable videos will give the reader an up-front look into technical aspects of traditional straight laparoscopic and hand-assisted minimally invasive surgery, as well as NOTES, transanal, robotic, single incision colectomy and combined laparoscopic-endoscopic resection.

Minimally Invasive Approaches to Colon and Rectal Disease: Technique and Best Practices will be of great utility to colorectal, general and oncologic surgeons who want to learn or improve their minimally invasive skills in colorectal surgery. Furthermore, this text will be of particular interest to the surgeons-in-training, and the general and colorectal surgeon who is often called upon to manage a variety of colorectal surgery conditions through a minimally invasive approach.
