Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gale M. England, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This atlas is a third edition text that is a compilation of selections from the fifth edition of Rob and Smith's Operative Surgery. The second edition was published in 1986.
Purpose: The purpose is to draw together several volumes of previous work and provide general surgery residents a condensed atlas of pertinent procedures. Residents then have a compact guide of surgical procedures to turn to instead of several large volumes. This atlas contains descriptions of most general surgical procedures without compromising completeness and thus meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: General surgery residents are the primary audience. Each subject is covered by an expert in the field.
Features: This edition contains expanded hepatobiliary and colorectal sections as well as the addition of laparoscopic procedures and new techniques for hernia repair, e.g., mesh plug. Techniques in the fields of plastic, breast, gastrointestinal, urology, vascular, and endocrine surgery are also covered. The chest and neurosurgical sections have been eliminated. Each chapter describes the pathologic process and the indications for operation. This is followed by a concise, yet thorough description of the steps of the procedure. Each step is further illustrated with a black-and-white drawing. Preoperative and postoperative care, special situations, and complications are also described.
Assessment: This atlas is a thorough treatment of procedures pertinent to the education of the general surgery resident. The text is easy to follow and the illustrations effectively emphasize important points. It would be a useful addition to the surgery resident's library.
