Postoperative management strategies are also addressed to ensure physicians can safely optimize patient outcomes.
As a resource that includes all of the most critical, new topics in parathyroid surgery, this book will appeal to both surgical and nonsurgical professionals, including general otolaryngologists, general surgeons, endocrine surgeons, head and neck surgeons, surgical oncologists, and endocrinologists.
From the Foreword:
“Parathyroid Surgery: Fundamental and Advanced Concepts is an excellent and very valuable book which offers a comprehensive account of our state of knowledge about parathyroid disorders in 2014. Many questions have been answered and other excellent ones have been posed. I recommend this book very highly to all “students” of parathyroid disease.”
