With over 150 distinguished authors from all parts of the world, this book truly represents its title, International Principles of Laparoscopic Surgery. Laparoscopic approaches to all of the standard general surgery procedures are included, and each author has included his or her own techniques and experiences. Many of the chapters also include recent studies and comparisons to other techniques currently available worldwide or within specific regions of the world.

Of particular note is a discussion of the history of flexible endoscopy and laparoscopy, use of robotics in the operating room, a large selection of readings on colorectal surgery, esophageal surgery and gastric procedures.
