Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samad Hashimi, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This book is a good attempt to introduce medical students to the field of surgery. It covers a wide range of topics and briefly and concisely introduces the topics.
Purpose: The purpose is to give a brief overview of the field of surgery and all the clinical situations where surgical intervention is warranted. This is certainly a noble goal and the authors achieve their objective.
Audience: The authors have aimed the book at medical students. The authors are well known and well respected in the field of surgery.
Features: The book attempts to cover all areas where surgical intervention may be necessary. This new edition includes chapters on preoperative care, management of issues such as MRSA, breast cancer screening, etc. Most specialties in the field of surgery are covered. As an example, diseases pertaining to the small intestine and large intestine are covered well. The book does a good job of narrowing down a big field. It attempts to introduce most common diseases without straying too much into the zebras. Another helpful feature is the presentation of short historical blurbs. The book falls short in covering topics such as basic anatomy. It also has very few illustrations which may not be ideal for visually oriented learners. Another shortcoming is the lack of references, although most students will undoubtedly have access to numerous other texts.
Assessment: This concise book is a great resource for students who want a general overview of the field of surgery. It does not delve into treatment options or surgical approaches, which was not the goal of the book.
From the Publisher
“Surgical texts are notoriously difficult to get your head around; this book is pitched at the perfect level for undergraduate medical students. An excellent study aid, brilliant revision aid, and all-round must have for your clinical education and general interest in the subject.” Medical Student, Leicester

“I would strongly recommend this book for any medical students with an interest in surgery and MRCS candidates. It’s clear, logical format makes it a joy to read either cover to cover or to dip in and out of as needed.” Medical Student, Keele

“This is the best core text available for undergraduate study of surgery. If you only buy one textbook, it should be this one- it will be a welcome companion in preparation for many surgical exams in addition to the routine work of the surgical placement.” Medical Student, Oxford

“This is the only book you need for surgery as a medical student. Reading it cover to cover gives you a good overview of the topics in surgery, whilst still offering enough detail to impress even the most demanding consultant. I love this book.” Medical Student, St. Georges

"This is probably the best surgical text, both as a revision aid and general reading - perfect for undergraduate topics." The Placebo Effect, HYMS Gazette
