What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book [...] continues its tradition of excellence and modern information."
Digestive and Liver Disease

“The book is well designed, accurately written and is an excellent resource for physicians (gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists) practicing in the arena of biliary disorders/diseases. The book is also an excellent reference for the generalist […] It views diagnosis and management of gallbladder and bile duct disorders with a focused and truly multidisciplinary approach. All aspects of interest to the clinician are accurately covered without bias to subspecialty.”
