Master Techniques in Surgery: Hernia is a volume in a new series that presents common and advanced procedures in the major subspecialties of general surgery. The series is overseen by Josef E. Fischer, MD, editor of the classic two-volume reference Mastery of Surgery. Master Techniques in Surgery: Hernia is written by acknowledged master surgeons, emphasizes surgical procedures, and is lavishly illustrated with original full-color drawings.
The contributors fully explain their preferred techniques in step-by-step, thoroughly illustrated detail, assess indications and contraindications, offer guidelines on preoperative planning, and discuss outcomes, complications, and follow-up. This volume covers open and laparoscopic hernia repairs, including open and laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs. Many other topics are covered, including sports hernia, diaphragmatic hernia, spigelian hernia, and hernia in infants. A companion website will offer the fully searchable text and select procedural videos.
