Werner & Ingbar's The Thyroid, 10th Edition

A Fundamental and Clinical Text

Werner & Ingbar’s The Thyroid: A Fundamental and Clinical Text, 10th Edition has been extensively revised and streamlined to deliver the most comprehensive coverage of the thyroid including anatomy, development, biochemistry, physiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of all thyroid disorders. Entirely new chapters on the surgical management of thyroid cancer, thyroid disruptors, and thyroid hormone analogs are in this edition. New authors and an international group of contributors elevate this classic text that includes extensive clinical coverage of thyroid dysfunction’s effects on other organ systems. Also addressed are clinical controversies regarding the ageing thyroid, subclinical hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and thyroid disease in pregnancy.

New to this edition:

·         Twenty-three chapters authored by new contributors and international experts

·         A companion website with fully searchable text for quick reference

·         Three new chapters discuss surgical management of thyroid cancer, thyroid disruptors, and thyroid hormone analogs to keep you up-to-date on the latest advances in the field

“This is an update of the classic thyroid text and is clearly essential for endocrinologists and thyroid surgeons. It is certainly useful for those undertaking thyroid related research but it is clearly far too detailed for students other than those undertaking basic science research in the thyroid. This edition has added the surgical management of thyroid disorders which is clearly an asset for the endocrine surgeon. With this type of reference text it is inevitable that there will be information from many years ago cited. There has however been a clear effort to update information and expand detail including more up-to-date references — studies related to markers of disease progression in thyroid cancer, cytopathology of thyroid cancer. Studies and other works that are references are of high quality and in general integral to the subject matter being discussed. There has also been a clear effort made to critically appraise the texts being cited. In general it is well written. Sections of the book can be a little monotonous only due to the subject matter i.e. thyroid hormone synthesis and thyroglobulin structure, function and biosynthesis. The diagrams and illustrations particularly in the basic science section are very useful. The use of colour images would have made them a lot more pleasing on the eye. Only for those subspecializing in thyroid disorders or conducting research into the thyroid gland. This book has helped me to understand the thyroid gland further and will continue to do so. It is the type of book one consults to answer a specific question and to provide context for a clinical problem.” — BMA Medical Book Award reviewer, 2013 BMA Medical Book Awards

General Information
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
