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.
“Evidence based medicine is clearly highlighted in text. Key points listed at end of each chapter and references with key research are highlighted. It has clear diagrams and illustrations. Overall a well-written text which provides a wealth of information for general surgical trainees and gastroenterologists.” Judges comments
