Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery is firmly established within the repertoire of modern general surgery.

Book Description
Colorectal Surgery: Living Pathology in the Operating Room is an atlas in the classic definition: each chapter is a two-page spread discussing one case. Visually, every chapter presents the reader with operative and/or diagnostic photos, and beautifully rendered anatomic line drawings by the author. The text, more extensive than in many atlases, provides a concise yet complete operative record: patient history/work up, anatomic anomalies, the procedure itself, pathologic findings, and follow up. Key teaching points emphasize the most important and unique aspects of every case. Resident and fellow will gain valuable diagnostic and therapeutic insights from this material, and the case study presentation provides an excellent review tool for the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery exam.
