4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"In its evolution over nine editions, Schwartz's Principles of Surgery has reflected the latest in surgical practice. In the age of minimally invasive surgery, illustrations are important and these authors include a wealth of visual material of good to excellent quality."—Doody's Review Service

Written by the world's foremost practitioners and instructors, this landmark reference logically progresses from basic science principles, including topics such as cells, genomics, and molecular surgery, to clinical areas such as pancreas. From cover to cover, the book reflects a distinctly modern approach in the dissemination of surgical knowledge, providing up-to-date coverage of all key surgical areas, from trauma and transplantation, to neurosurgery. In each chapter, this content is supported by a skill-building format that includes boxed key points, detailed anatomical figures, diagnostic and management algorithms, an abundance of informative tables, and key references.

For every kind of procedure, this one-of-a-kind clinical companion helps you meet the sequential demands in the care of surgical patients, leading to the best possible outcomes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the ninth edition of a time-honored, respected comprehensive textbook of surgery.
Purpose: A comprehensive review of surgical principles and technique is provided, with a significant emphasis on minimally invasive procedures.
Audience: Students interested in a career in surgery, surgical trainees at all levels, and practitioners desiring a review for certification exams are an appropriate audience for this work, which originates from a group of leading authors and editors from throughout the United States.
Features: The 48 chapters are supplemented by a DVD featuring surgical techniques. Chapters are grouped by basic and specific considerations. Basic considerations include systemic response to surgery, fluid and electrolyte management, transfusion, and surgical bleeding and shock. Core surgical disciplines, including trauma, wound management, transplantation, and approaches to minimally invasive techniques are discussed. The second and largest portion of the book includes considerations particular to organ systems. Traditional surgical disciplines such as pediatrics, urology, gynecology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics are presented. Focused discussion is provided on topics specific to general surgeons, such as pancreatic disease, breast disease, intestinal disorders, and cardiovascular disease. Chapters are clearly written and contain extensive reference lists that include citations dated to within two years of publication. Tables and figures are frequently used. Photographs and radiographs are less frequently used and reproduce with adequate quality. Multicolor drawings present material effectively and reproduce well. Each chapter opens with a listing of key points and subheadings. Key references are collected after the final chapter and prior to an extensive subject index of over 100 pages with separate listings for tables and figures. The majority of material on the DVD is introductory and advanced laparoscopic procedures.
Assessment: In its evolution over nine editions, Schwartz's Principles of Surgery has reflected the latest in surgical practice. In the age of minimally invasive surgery, illustrations are important and these authors include a wealth of visual material of good to excellent quality.
Paula K. Shireman
This textbook, which outlines the pathophysiology and treatment options of surgical diseases, is currently in its sixth edition. The previous edition was published in 1989. The authors present surgical knowledge based on normal and abnormal physiology, thereby making treatment for various diseases easily understandable and logical. The stated audience includes medical students, surgeons-in-training, and practicing physicians. Although medical students may find this book too detailed and long for use during a surgical clerkship, it is most valuable to surgical residents who need a broad understanding of disease states and treatments. It is also an excellent review for practicing surgeons. The book is organized into "Basic Considerations" and "Specific Considerations. The first section covers a wide range of topics, such as shock, oncology, and incorporating basic science and how it applies to the surgical patient. The second section is organized by organ systems. Each chapter starts with the anatomy and physiology of the particular organ, and then describes disease states and therapy. Many of the numerous illustrations demonstrate the relevant surgical procedures. Multiple references are provided in each chapter and often include both classical and recent papers. This textbook has long been a staple of surgical education. Approximately half of the chapters in this sixth edition are by new contributors, and the rest of the chapters have been revised. The addition of minimally invasive surgery techniques and their application to various diseases is predominantly new to this edition. It remains an outstanding textbook on general surgery.

The 25th anniversary edition of a classic textbook of surgery originally published in 1969, and most recently (5th ed.) in 1989. The present edition is extensively revised and updated to reflect the explosion of scientific information and the advancement of the field of surgery. The chapters on breast, tumors of the head and neck, peripheral arterial disease, manifestations of gastrointestinal disease, esophagus and diaphragmatic hernia, colon, rectum, and anus, gallbladder and biliary tract, pancreas, abdominal wall hernias, pituitary, urology, gynecology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics all represent new presentations by new authors.
