This book is an operative guide to laparoscopic hernia repair for practising and trainee surgeons.
Beginning with an introduction and discussion on anatomy, the following section provides step by step guidance on the surgical repair of different types of hernia, and potential difficulties and complications.
The final chapter provides a general overview of hernia, explaining classification, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
The book includes two interactive DVD ROMs demonstrating surgical techniques as well as high quality photographs and illustrations.
