Overview

Oesophagogastric Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities.

This is a title in the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series whose eight volumes are an established and highly regarded source of information for the specialist general surgeon.

  • Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and within the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.
  • An expanded authorship team across the series includes additional European and World experts with an increased emphasis on global practice.
  • The contents of the series have been extensively revised in line with recently published evidence.
