This concise volume gives you a comprehensive review of both general surgery and surgical subspecialties in a user-friendly, question-and-answer format. Thoroughly revised, this 4th edition adds new chapters and updates existing chapters while maintaining its broad review of surgical topics. This ensures the questions offer a wide-ranging and complete review of the information most important to you. The Rush University Review is perfect for residents in training; surgeons preparing for certification or recertification exams, and experienced clinicians wishing to keep abreast of current advances.

• Contains more than 1,500 review questions — with answers and rationales — that cover the full range of topics in general and subspecialty surgery, all the information surgeons need to prepare for board certification and recertification ... or to stay current with new advances.
• Matches the format of the boards, with every question in the "single best-answer" or "initial best-answer" format, making the Rush University Review an ideal board-preparation tool.

• Includes new chapters on preoperative care, the acute abdomen, complications, morbid obesity, transmissible diseases and the surgeon, principles of laparoscopy, and principles of ultrasonography.
• Offers updated coverage of colon surgery, surgical technology, and genetics.
