Book Description

Thyroid Surgery: Principles and Practice will bridge a gap between the huge platform of literature available about thyroid surgery and the practical working reality. The pearls in techniques and surgical procedures are exhaustively detailed with authors' individual experience enriched with quality photographs. This book covers management of large/massive multinodular goiters which are the hallmark of Indian thyroids. However, the emphasis will be more on applying this knowledge to a given patient and would largely revolve around this theme. It aims to provide a take-home message in controversial areas and is a ready reference to all interested in learning the science and craftsmanship of thyroid surgery.

  • Covers all topics comprehensively with a practical approach
  • Inclusion of guidelines adds value to the content
  • Discusses all investigatory modalities

This book provides an unparalleled explanation of the management of large goiters, which are currently encountered only rarely in the U.S. The book is intended to "bridge a gap between the huge platform of literature available about thyroid surgery and the practical working reality." It meets its objectives and provides detailed technical tips about the management of huge goiters, and therefore thyroid surgeons and trainees in thyroid surgery who operate for massive multinodular goiters may find this book useful, who might encounter these cases only rarely. The author and contributors are all credible authorities. The book follows a logical plan, beginning with history, surgical anatomy, clinical and imaging assessment, and pathology. It then segues into medical and surgical management. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs and a few drawings, the wealth of information, and clinical pearls about management of advanced disease is a huge plus.
