Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neal W Wilkinson, MD (Kalispell Regional Medical Center)
Description: This large, two-volume set covers the entire spectrum of general surgery, illustrating and outlining surgical technique. This fifth edition provides new and updated chapters that complement prior editions well.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a wide-ranging, topic-based book on general surgery. New chapters cover complications, outcome measures, and patient factors.
Audience: Written at a level appropriate for the practicing surgeon, the book covers the entire field of general surgery, including pediatrics, thoracic, oncology, and head and neck. Surgeons in training should use this book to prepare for future cases, anticipate complications, and manage difficult situations. For surgical residents, this book (old or new edition) should be on the short list of "must read" texts.
Features: Within each of the many topic areas, separate chapters cover traditional surgery, minimally invasive techniques, difficult situations, and complications. Many chapters are dedicated to one surgical procedure providing adequate depth and scope. Illustrations and algorithms are well selected and helpful. Many new chapters have been added and some classic chapters moved to a web site, accessible with a code provided in the book.
Assessment: This edition is well written by masters in the field with ample space allotted to illustration, text, and evidence. Previous editions were excellent and many of the classic chapters were kept. New chapters have been added that include new authors or new topics.
