Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Simon Roh, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This book covers basic surgical procedures at an appropriate level of detail for midlevel surgical residents.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a succinct summary of the steps involved in common general surgery procedures. Having a concise presentation of a procedure is very useful to review prior to actually carrying it out.
Audience: Midlevel surgery residents are the intended audience.
Features: General surgery procedures are presented in a way that is easy to follow. Surgery is visually oriented and the illustrations help to better understand the procedures. They will allow residents at all levels to gain a better understanding of the anatomy involved. The book is unique in that it presents information in a bullet-point format, making for fast and efficient reading. A shortcoming is that the illustrations do not contain a lot of detail, which may lead some residents to look to other sources for additional anatomic information.
Assessment: This book does a good job of breaking down the steps of a common general surgery procedure. It is easy to read and understand, with good visuals. It is among the best in its field because the text is easy to read and the illustrations highlight key anatomical parts.
