This approach to a common problem differs from classical texts by concentrating on clear, concise presentations of standard and advanced techniques in inguinal herniorrhaphy, and assumes that the underlying anatomy and pathology is already understood by the reader. It is a high-level reference, written by and for experts in the field.
