Surgical endocrinology is a prime example of a specialty area of medicine that benefits from a multidisciplinary approach to clinical problems. The text Surgical Endocrinology is coedited by a leading endocrinologist and endocrine surgeon who have assembled a field of experts in endocrinology, surgery, genetics, and molecular medicine from throughout North America and Europe.

The book is logically organized into six sections addressing general concepts, the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, the pancreas, and carcinoid tumors. The sixth section is focused on familial endocrinopathies. The target audience is practicing surgeons, but medical students, surgical and medical residents, and staff internists will benefit from this addition to their reference libraries.
