About this book

Introduction

This is not designed to be yet another textbook in laparoscopic surgery. Instead, its purpose is to specifically address topics of controversy in this rapidly evolving field. The book is aimed not only at the 'dedicated' laparoscopic surgeon, but also at general surgeons and surgical trainees. The aim of each chapter is to define, sharpen and emphasize issues of controversy, using the available evidence. Each chapter has been written by a leading, internationally recognised laparoscopic surgeon and is followed by a critical-'balancing comment' by another expert in the field, not necessarily a laparoscopic.
