Focused issue on “Novel Technologies in Endocrine Surgery” is edited by Dr. Marcin Barczyński, Department of Endocrine Surgery, Third Chair of General Surgery, Jagiellonian University, Medical College, Kraków, Poland.

Dr. Marcin Barczyński is Professor of Surgery at the Jagiellonian University. He has served currently as President-Elect of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons (ESES) and a member of the Steering Committee of the International Neural Monitoring Study Group (INMSG) for Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery, and Secretary of the UEMS Division of Endocrine Surgery of the European Board of Surgery. Dr. Barczyński’s principle research interests have been in surgical disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands.
