    Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgery is now firmly established within the repertoire of modern general surgery.

    • An in depth coverage of benign and malignant disorders of the liver, pancreas, and bile ducts and gallbladder
    • A comprehensive section on anatomy, imaging, and surgical technique
    • Over 20 new chapters, including a complete account of pediatric HPB disorders
    • Illustrated with almost 300 high-resolution images, many in full-color

    Surgical Management of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Disorders, Second Edition, comprehensively covers the full spectrum of common HPB diseases and associated surgical techniques to assist not only the general surgeon in regular practice, but also surgical trainees and those in related specialties of oncology, radiology, gastroenterology, and anesthesia.
