The seventh edition of Current Surgical Therapy features 280 all-new chapters, each written by an expert surgeon who offers proven, practical approaches to the surgical management of a given disease. Contributors have been chosen not only for their prominence in the field, but also because they are actively involved in patient care. Each chapter covers a condition that is seen with some frequency in the general surgeon's practice. For faster reference, chapters follow a consistent format: patient selection, timing of therapy, preoperative care, operative technique, postoperative management, adjuvant therapy, prevention and management of complications, and follow-up. Diagnosis and pathophysiology are discussed only to the extent that they affect treatment choices.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

David N. Bimston
This is the fifth edition of a well-received generalsurgery book. The book evaluates the management and therapy of a widerange of surgical diseases. The previous edition was published in 1992.Each edition features chapters written by different authors. Thepurpose is to provide an up-to-date discussion of the treatment andmanagement of surgical problems. The author fully meets this objective.One can obtain a variety of viewpoints on a subject by reading the samechapter in different editions. Written for the practicing surgeon andthe senior resident, leaders in the field of surgery discuss many rareand controversial issues. This book is not intended for the surgicalnovice. The book covers a wide range of subjects that are clearlypresented. Most discussions include a critical interpretation ofcurrent literature and are supplemented by easy to follow figures,tables, and charts. The fifth edition features updated references and anew section on minimally invasive surgery. As with previous editions,this book is a useful resource for both senior residents and surgicalpractitioners. It provides a current review of the management andtherapy of a wide range of surgical problems. The text's concisepresentation makes it useful for both primary and referenceuses.

This book for general surgeons is provided as anupdate to address standard of care for all problems that a generalsurgeon may encounter. This series of Current Surgical Therapy isreleased every three years. The purpose is to provide an up-to-datesource for surgical management and therapeutic options in generalsurgery. These are certainly worthy objectives and the authors meetthese objectives as this is the most comprehensive update in generalsurgery. This book is written for residents of surgery and is morehelpful to more senior residents in surgery. It is pertinent forpracticing general surgeons in academic and private settings. It isespecially useful in studying for the American Board of SurgeryQualifying and Certifying Examinations, as well as the RecertifyingExaminations. The authors are certainly credible authorities. Itcovers virtually every problem that a general surgeon may encounter inhis or her career. There are new expanded sections focusing oninnovative techniques in general surgery, as well as minimally invasivesurgical techniques. This is an excellent text that stands out amongothers as an authority on up-to-date therapeutic options in generalsurgery. It is an excellent text for study for the American Board ofSurgery or Recertifying Examinations. The release of new editionsevery three years keeps this series current in standards ofcare.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neal W Wilkinson, MD (Kalispell Regional Medical Center)
Description: With the 11th edition, this book has new authors, new illustrations, and updated recommendations in general surgery.
Purpose: Each chapter covers a topic in a brief and surgically oriented manner. This edition manages to provide new and updated information with minimal overlap with previous editions. The editors attempted to enroll a wide variety of expert authors to write each chapter while avoiding duplication.
Audience: Surgeons in training (residents and fellows) from all disciplines of surgical practice are the intended audience. Junior and senior surgeons find the book equally helpful to review less well-known disease presentations, get succinct updates, and review for recertification. The authors are well versed in their topics and provide expert opinions.
Features: The book covers the entire spectrum of general surgery, approaching each topic using the same format: disease presentation, pathophysiology, and diagnostics, followed by surgical therapy. There are approximately 20 major sections, each consisting of 10 to 30 subsections of approximately 1 to 3 pages with good illustrations. The majority of the book revolves around best practice recommendations, clearly defined algorithms, and published outcomes.
Assessment: This book is often cited as the "most important" tool for preparing for written, oral, and recertifying boards in surgery. Although similar in appearance to previous editions in presentation and layout, it is clear once you open it that this is where the similarity ends. Each section is written by new authors and complements the previous editions well.
From the Publisher

"This continues as the clinical reference of choice for general and vascular surgeons, particularly those taking oral certifying examinations. Updates are obvious since the previous edition in 2008, and the quality of illustrations has steadily improved. Finally, this edition includes access to a web site with the searchable text and additional resources."- David J. Dries, MDDoody Review: 4 stars
