Overview

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.

Reviewer: Randy S. Haluck, MD (Pennsylvania State University)
Description: This book for general surgeons is provided as an update to address standard of care for all problems that a general surgeon may encounter. This series of Current Surgical Therapy is released every three years.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an up-to-date source for surgical management and therapeutic options in general surgery. These are certainly worthy objectives and the authors meet these objectives as this is the most comprehensive update in general surgery.
Audience: This book is written for residents of surgery and is more helpful to more senior residents in surgery. It is pertinent for practicing general surgeons in academic and private settings. It is especially useful in studying for the American Board of Surgery Qualifying and Certifying Examinations, as well as the Recertifying Examinations. The authors are certainly credible authorities.
Features: It covers virtually every problem that a general surgeon may encounter in his or her career. There are new expanded sections focusing on innovative techniques in general surgery, as well as minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Assessment: This is an excellent text that stands out among others as an authority on up-to-date therapeutic options in general surgery. It is an excellent text for study for the American Board of Surgery or Recertifying Examinations. The release of new editions every three years keeps this series current in standards of care.

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.
