Minimally invasive surgery is the treatment of choice for most upper GI operations for benign disease, but the trend toward laparoscopic surgery in malignancies has been slower and more controversial.
Cancer surgery, however, poses some unique challenges that make the application of minimally invasive surgery in oncology more problematic.
Laparoscopy in Surgical Oncology brings together a group of European and N American contributors, all experts in their field, to provide a text for specialists and trainees.
This book covers all current key topics within the area of minimally invasive procedures in oncology.
