Overview

Building on the firm foundations of the past 22 editions, this is a very thorough revision of this classic textbook. All sections have been revised and updated; in particular the chapters on trauma, orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery and maxillofacial surgery have been extensively rewritten under the direction of the new co-editor Professor Christopher Bulstrode. New chapters have been added on the role of radiology in surgical practice, principles of laparoscopic surgery, clinical trials and statistical research, and surgical ethics.

The book's high standing and reputation for unambiguous advice makes it the first point of reference for many undergraduate and postgraduate students. This comprehensive text will also be of use to practising surgeons.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul A. Taheri, MD, MBA (University of Michigan Health System)
Description: This book provides a clear, concise, introductory perspective on the diagnosis and treatment of surgical diseases.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a clinical emphasis on the art and science of surgery. The authors are remarkably effective in their ability to integrate traditional clinical observation and bedside diagnosis with the more innovative technological advances to arrive at appropriate diagnoses.
Audience: The book is written for students and residents who by design require a broad understanding of surgical disease. These authors and the many contributors have accomplished this task.
Features: Essentially all pertinent surgical topics are covered. The recent emphasis on trauma is a worthy addition. The illustrations and figures are well organized and contribute to the understanding of the material. The only significant shortcoming is the lack of a basic science perspective on surgical disease.
Assessment: This book functions extraordinarily well as an introduction to clinical surgery and as a reference. The addition of several new chapters and the recent emphasis on emergency surgery and trauma add considerable value to the book. The authors have achieved the goal of maintaining this text as one of the premier surgical treatises in the world.
