IPOM and IPOM Plus

  • Jan F. Kukleta


By my gut feeling, I expect this book to become a book of recipes – recipes for possibly best surgical cuisine at the time (2017–2018). As I don’t have much experience with Gault Millau or Michelin Stars, I expect you to read my contribution to this book as my personal understanding of the topic trying to highlight the best available solution for each individual patient.
