New Publications

Dr. Randolph's publication, Surgery of the Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands, 2nd Edition, is a comprehensive surgical textbook focused on malignant and benign disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. The text emphasizes the anatomy, surgical procedures, and workup needed for these conditions, as well as how to effectively manage the difficult cases encountered by experienced surgeons.
