Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Textbook of a great overview of General Surgery. The chapters are clearly structured and the text is easy to read and to understand...There are a lot of intraoperative and radiological pictures, which are of a great help in the daily diagnostic and treatment of a patient...The Sabiston Textbook of Surgery is a great help and support for a surgeon and can be highly recommended.
European Journal of Paediatric Surgery

"A brief review such as this cannot do justice to a textbook that is sure to take its place among the finest ever published for general surgeons...marvel at the quality of the information presented by the authors, the outstanding editorship, the superb illustrations, and, by the way, the modest cost in a time of escalating and often unaffordable prices for medical students and residents."—JAMA

A particular effort with presentation, with illustrations and figures in colour which are very readable and all accessible on CD-ROM.
The authors knew to reconcile tradition and modernism with this monumental work, which is addressed to surgeons, general practitioners and the student to the experienced surgeon.
European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, May 2005
