Since the introduction of minimally invasive surgery, with its ability to access organs through small incisions, the number of applications of the technique has steadily increased. The term minimal access surgery now encompasses a variety of techniques including fibre-optic endoscopy and transanal endoscopic microsurgery as well as the well-documented laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approaches for a variety of conditions. Advances in technology now mean that, in the majority of cases, a minimalist approach is a feasible alternative to the more conventional option of open surgery. Written by an international group of experts, Minimal Access Surgery in Oncology is an authoritative, critical assessment of the application of minimally invasive surgery in the well circumscribed area of oncologic surgery which highlights the key pitfalls and controversies associated with all commonly used techniques and provides a balanced view of the benefits and drawbacks of each. This book is intended for surgeons and Oncologists in training and in practice.
