Klaus J. Thaler, M.D., chairman of the Department of Surgery at Norwalk Hospital, has co-authored a chapter in the textbook "Mastery of Endoscopic and Laparascopic Surgery."
The chapter is "Laparoscopic Surgery of the Appendix and Beyond -- Single Incision and NOTES Appendectomy."
Thaler is an expert in minimally invasive surgery and a leader in the developing field of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery, which is also known as incisionless or natural orifice surgery. Natural orifice surgery is another milestone in minimally invasive surgery.
With this book chapter, it now also found its place in the field of surgical education.
