"This book is dedicated solely to laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. ... The intended audience is general surgeons and surgical residents. Considering the level of the material and the rarity of the procedure in western countries, this book is more suitable for surgical oncology trainees and practicing physicians who desire to gain in-depth knowledge about this procedure."
