Atlas of Thyroid Surgery: Principles, Practice, and Clinical Cases is a superb guide for general surgeons and endocrine and ENT surgeons operating on the thyroid. Endocrinologists, oncologists, pathologists, and residents in these specialties will also greatly benefit from the wealth of information provided in the text.

This clearly written by an expert in thyroid surgery...Systematically covers all aspects of thyroid surgery. There are good chapters on thyroid nodules, molecular genetic diagnosis and gene profiling, as well as case records, an excellent chapter on embryological thyroid developmental anomolies, plus chapters which describe how to deal with benign nodular goitre, nodules in Graves disease amd thyroiditis, and malignant tumors. Throughout the text, all chapters are well referenced and beautifully illustrated. I particularly enjoyed the simple diagrams used to describe well recognized surgical maneuvers...This is an excellent book. I would recommend it to any thyroid surgeon, and it should be on the shelf of most departmental libraries.--Journal of Laryngology & OtologyMasterful work...Intraoperativephotographs, radiologic images, and schematic diagrams highlight nearly every page of this text...concise yet complete...a useful tool for board review...the images and diagrams in the atlas are outstanding...a valuable addition to any surgical library and a useful reference for the thyroid surgeon.--Annals of Otoolgy, Rhinology & Laryngology
