Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul G. Gauger, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This textbook offers a comprehensive compilation of knowledge in a very focused area of surgical practice that is often inadequately covered in standard surgical texts.
Purpose: The editors intends to link medical and surgical knowledge of both generalized and organ-specific disease entities encountered in the practice of endocrine surgery. These worthy objectives are clearly met.
Audience: This textbook is intended for practicing endocrine surgeons and for their medical endocrinology counterparts. The information also will be quite accessible and useful to surgeons-in-training. Both editors are clearly recognized as experts in their field. The list of contributors is distinguished and is not limited to surgeons.
Features: The organization is well thought out and quite logical. Although comprehensive, the book is still quite compact. Aside from the usual thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and endocrine-pancreatic coverage, this text has the welcome addition of special sections covering general endocrine oncogenesis and familial endocrinopathies. There are even separate chapters on lung and thymic neuroendocrine tumors and Hipple-Lindau Disease. Molecular aspects of endocrine disease and genetic analyses are all thoroughly covered with current information. The textbook also includes approximately 20 color images.
Assessment: I think this is an outstanding contribution to the field and will quickly become a favorite reference for practicing endocrine surgeons and also an accessible and authoritative reference to the endocrinologist.

Booknews
Contributions from surgeons and endocrinologists in the U.S. and Europe examine medical and surgical treatments of the diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, endocrine pancreas, and the diffuse neuroendocrine system. Topics covered include the surgical evaluation, decision-making, and operative strategies for diseases of these organs, as well as the molecular basis for endocrine neoplasia, the current understanding of the molecular genetics of familial endocrine syndromes, and the medical endocrinology evaluation of specific problems. Doherty (Washington U., St. Louis) and Sk<:o>gseid (University Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden) have designed the text for both surgeons and nonsurgeons. Annotation c.
