Hepatobiliary and liver transplant surgery has emerged as a new subspecialty within GI and abdominal surgery. More and more new surgical trainees are now attracted to this emerging new field. This has led to the beginning of structured fellowships and teaching programs across the globe. Currently, there is a paucity of a textbook that encompasses details of all the aspects of liver transplantation. At present, the information for the trainees is scattered, and time-consuming to find reliable material from the internet. This “Textbook of Liver Transplantation” deals with a depth description of every aspect of liver transplantation.
In this textbook, Dr Chirag Desai has assembled a diverse group of regional and international expert authors. All the authors are experts in their field and have contributed on a subject which is their core strength.
This book offers focused guidance in a highly templated, easy-to-consult format. The chapters follow an easily readable pattern and are filled with high-quality illustrations. The chapters on surgical techniques have high-resolution multicolor images, which gives it a look of Atlas of Surgery said Dr. Chirag Desai, main editor of the book.
This book is comprehensive and wholesome in nature and contains details on Liver transplant for various special situations and administrative details of liver transplantation in addition to the technical aspects. The field of liver transplantation is expanding in every aspect. This textbook gives a depth description of all such topics.
The breadth and depth of knowledge provided by this textbook will be of value to all specialists and trainees working in this wide multi-disciplinary field who require an easily accessible and authoritative guide to the basics and intricacies of liver transplantation.
