McGraw-Hill Manual Endocrine Surgery was written to provide a succinct yet comprehensive resource for a wide variety of endocrine disorders. The topics are based on diseases and conditions that affect the thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pancreas, and gastrointestinal tract. The focus of this book is to ensure that pertinent information, including management of patients, is provided; hence, each chapter concludes with a section titled “Practical Pearls.”

Endocrine surgery is now recognized as a distinct discipline of general surgery. Accordingly, the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons had its initial Endocrine Surgery Fellowship Match in 2007, and this manual was primarily written by fellows of the inaugural class. All were mentored by senior faculty at their respective academic facilities who are experienced endocrine surgeons, and each participating program from the class of 2007-2008 was represented. Every effort was made to ensure that institutions that had an expertise in a particular field authored that chapter.

This book does not encompass endocrine surgery in its entirety. It is beyond the scope of this publication to cover every aspect of this vast field. However, whenever possible, the authors have addressed controversies in the management of particular endocrine surgical conditions.

It is the intent of the editors that any health care provider may use this manual. We hope that nursing students, medical students, medical residents, surgical residents, fellows, practicing clinicians, and other personnel interested in endocrine surgery will both enjoy reading this manual and find it to be a useful resource.
