Endocrine Surgery Comprehensive Board Exam Guide Excerpt :

Every surgical subspecialty has been rapidly developing with establishment of the board certification. The Division of Endocrine Surgery (DES) of the European Board of Surgery has defined the curriculum for Endocrine Surgery to include thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and GEP-NET surgery, and handles accreditation in Endocrine Surgery. The first examinations in Endocrine Surgery in Europe have been introduced in 2003. The main goal of the exam is to maintain a uniform and high standard of endocrine surgical professionalism across the Europe. This book was completed with the expectation that it would benefit all European surgeons looking to be certified in Endocrine Surgery. Additionally, surgeons from the United States and other non-EU countries we hope will also benefit from this book. There is a need for a specialized book that reviews evidence based endocrine surgery that aligns itself with current curriculum standards in the field. The book contains knowledge that is expected to be known on the board examination of the DES. In general, chapters start with a patient's case followed by questions. The subsequent comprehensive yet concise main text provides all the information needed for a successful DES exam and cites important references. After the patient case and questions, the text goes on to define the condition, the standard of care approach to establish the diagnosis, perform diagnostic tests of choice, review evidence-based treatment options including medical therapy, preparation for surgery. The chapters conclude with follow up care and long term outcomes. The topics discussed within this book closely follow the curriculum of the European Board of Surgery Examination. Written by experts in the field, Endocrine Surgery Comprehensive Board Exam Guide is a valuable source of preparation for the Endocrine Surgery examination and brings Endocrine Surgery to a higher level of expertise by helping to raise the standard of training for future endocrine surgeons.

Thyroid Encyclopedia Excerpt :

The Thyroid Encyclopedia is intended to help all patients, and their family members, to better understand thyroid diseases, thyroid cancer, and thyroid problems. The goal of this book is to educate the patient, as well as help them understand all aspects of their disease and treatment process. Most of the time patients have questions related to the interpretation of their specific test results, the meaning of specific medical terms of their diagnosis, and their treatment plan. A majority of patients, who are reading their own laboratory, radiology, or pathology reports, are not familiar with specific medical terminology related to the thyroid gland and thyroid disease. Sometimes, physicians and health care providers are not available to discuss, or do not have enough time to explain to the patient and interpret all nuances of their diagnosis, test results, or treatment plan. Throughout my 15 years practicing thyroidology (treating patients with thyroid diseases), I have realized that there is not enough information presented to patients during their visits and that patients still have multiple questions leaving their appointments. There is no specific designated practice provider who can explain and interpret to the patient all specific terminology related to her/his disease. The idea to educate and to help the patient along throughout their journey and through their cure is the main reason that the Thyroid Encyclopedia came alive.
