About this title


Dr. Buchwald is a pioneer in his own right, for having invented the first implantable infusion pump and his early work in bariatric surgery. Following an overview of general medicine and surgery going back to their origins, Gillison (emeritus consultant surgeon, UK), Buchwald (surgery and biomedical engineering, U. of Minnesota), and other international contributors treat the factors that helped birth surgical gastroenterology. The 16 illustrated chapters trace milestones in GI surgery and showcase its pioneers from Theodor Billroth, considered the father of such surgery, to those who brought us laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery and continent ileostomy. The appendix (appendectomies are discussed) contains biographical notes on key pioneers discussed. The volume is not indexed. U.S. distribution by BookMasters. Annotation 2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
