To all readers of this book on pancreatitis: The idea of centering a book on pancreatitis came to the author’s mind after working as a general surgeon at his hospital over a period of twenty-seven years after his return from Britain, where he finished his postgraduate training and received the fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This book covers topics of pancreatitis including pathology, clinical presentation, investigations and treatment; it is recommended for resident surgeons and will help them to attain knowledge on pancreatitis. The author would like to thank the staff of the HBP unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital at Birmingham, particularly Professor J. Buckle and Mr. D. Mirza, who gave the author the chance to practice his skills when he was a visiting surgeon at their unit.
