This text/atlas is a comprehensive guide to minimally invasive procedures in general surgery. Chapters are authored by world-renowned experts in this technology, who share their firsthand operative experience, emphasizing decision-making, anatomy, and key steps in the operations. The Third Edition features expanded sections on the esophagus, gastrointestinal tract, liver and biliary tract, pancreas and spleen, and small and large bowel. These areas have become vitally important to general surgeons and residents since they have seen the most significant advances in the last few years. To accommodate this growth, some highly subspecialized procedures in gynecological surgery, urological surgery, and cardiac surgery have been removed.
