Front Cover
Robert J. Fitzgibbons, A. Gerson Greenburg, Lloyd Milton Nyhus
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - 650 pages

Thoroughly revised by distinguished new authors, the Fifth Edition of Dr. Nyhus and Condon's classic text remains the definitive reference on hernia. This edition has been extensively reorganized to include laparoscopic procedures in each chapter and to offer comparisons of the various types of hernia repair. The largest part of the book is devoted to inguinal hernia, but esophageal, abdominal, and diaphragmatic hernia are also covered. A chapter on hernia in pediatric patients is included. More than 600 illustrations complement the text.

A Brandon-Hill recommended title.
