With worldwide contributions from experts in the field of parathyroid disease and surgery, Parathyroid Surgery: Fundamental and Advanced Concepts is the only text devoted specifically to the surgical management of parathyroid disease. Chapters include detailed discussions of preoperative diagnosis and testing, advanced imaging techniques and state-of-the-art surgical interventions, and incorporate thorough and judicious reviews of the current medical literature. 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."

  • Joel A Smith FRCS (ORL-HNS), Journal of Laryngology and Otology(July 2014):
    "Parathyroid Surgery: Fundamental and Advanced Concepts is a timely and welcome addition to the literature on parathyroid disease and its surgical management. The sub-speciality has undergone significant changes in recent years, both in terms of diagnosis and management strategies, and the book is a response to this. ...

    By keeping the scope broad, the authors have given this book wide appeal and it represents a useful text for medical students and residents alike. In addition, the advanced sections, including investigation, surgical treatment algorithms and management of patients with complex disease make it an essential text for practicing surgeons of all abilities and from all backgrounds. The modernity of the text, with its authorship from a combination of surgical backgrounds, further illustrates its up-to date nature and forward projection.

    The book is logically set out and works both as a complete text or a series of well constructed sub-sections. ... Although sub-sections are written by specialists within each field, the overall style is well maintained by the editors, ensuring flow and progression, whilst keeping the subject of parathyroid surgery at the forefront of the discussion. ... The content is well presented with appropriate and clear illustrations throughout, which augment the presented text without distracting from it. As such, it should be regarded as the complete text for the parathyroid surgeon. ...

    Overall, this is a well-resourced and logical book with wide appeal to those managing patients with parathyroid disease. It achieves its ultimate goal of defining parathyroid surgery as a sub-speciality in its own right, rather than an aside in textbooks on thyroid disease. As an inaugural edition I am sure it and its future iterations will become established as a vital text for parathyroid surgeons. It is a welcome addition to the literature, bringing together recent advances in investigation and treatment and meets a demand for increasing surgical need in the populations in which we work."

  • Philip M Spanheimer, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics), Doody's Review Service(July 2014):
    "It starts with historical perspectives, anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry before progressing to diagnosis and medical and surgical management. The discussions of pathophysiology and imaging are excellent, detailed, and presented in a way that is easy to understand. This is the most comprehensive book on parathyroid disease that I have seen. This is a phenomenal resource on parathyroid disease. It achieves the difficult goal of being an appropriate reference for medical students through experienced providers and makes complex subjects accessible while maintaining important detail."
