About the Author
Gregory W. Randolph's name through his work over the last 20 years,
has been associated with the recurrent laryngeal nerve and neural
monitoring in thyroid surgery. He has established relationships
with many of the key clinicians in this area, all of whom have
preliminarily agreed and are excited to contribute on topics
assigned to them. The name recognition and international
backgrounds of the authors involved in this text is quite
"The authors intend the book for endocrine surgeons, including
otolaryngologists and general surgeons and fellows in endocrine
surgery and head and neck surgery, as well as residents in
otolaryngology and general surgery. Given the focused topic, those
already experienced with thyroid surgery but interested in
mastering this thyroid surgical endeavor will find it the most
appealing. ... The biggest strength of this book is the depth in
which it addresses the topics." (John Cramer, Doody's Book Reviews,
