Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Allison Welte Lorenzen, MD-spring 2012(University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine)
Description: Like its previous editions (last one published in 2008), this book uses a rapid fire question-and-answer format that is meant to aid third- and fourth-year medical students on their surgical clerkship.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as a concise collection of surgical facts that should be possessed by all medical students during and following their surgical clerkship. The surgical field is vast and the amount of information that students must glean from a surgical clerkship is immense, therefore a quick reference guide, such as this one, is a very helpful resource.
Audience: Individuals early in their surgical training, primarily medical students and junior residents, are the intended audience. The content and the manner in which it is presented are appropriate for students with little previous exposure to the field of surgery.
Features: "This book covers a broad spectrum of surgical topics in three sections. The first section focuses on basic surgical information, ranging from surgical terminology and simple procedures to postoperative management and surgical complications. Another section covers topics specific to general surgery presented by organ, and the third section discusses topics related to surgical specialties. The early chapters serve as a helpful orientation for students to the world of surgery. Beginning a surgical rotation can be intimidating for students who are unfamiliar to surgical practice. Therefore, the early chapters covering basic surgical terminology, OR procedures, and surgical instruments are particularly useful. The organization of the bulk of the book by organ/organ system helps students easily find and reference procedures and topics that are of interest or that they see on rounds or in the operating room. The book employs a rapid-fire, question-and-answer format. This is a concise and easy means of presenting information to students. It not only allows students the ability to cover a lot of information quickly but the format is perfectly suited for self-testing. Discussion of the relevant anatomy and the pictures that accompany descriptions of procedures help students develop a better understanding of what they will see in the operating room and why certain things are done. "
Assessment: As a medical student, I found this book to be a very good resource for students on their surgical clerkship. Not only does it provide background information to help orient students to the surgical discipline but it also includes comprehensive information on the pathophysiology of diseases and their treatments and outcomes. This book is similar to others for medical students but its unique format allows students to access this information quickly and efficiently. Additionally, discussion of procedures and relevant anatomy prepares students to serve as active and engaged participants in the operating suite.

    A must have for all medical students

    This is a very nice review book for the students in surgery. I found it to be the best seller on one of the web sites and now I know why it is so. You can always keep quizing ur self on the go. It includes both basic sugery and subspeciality chapters. I was the first to buy it in my class and now almost 90% of my class is carrying this book around all day.

    Excellent Book . . . With Caution!

    This is a great book. As a surgical resident, and once a student, I have yet to put on my lab coat without ensuring that this is in my bottom left pocket. At times when you are overworked, tired, hungry, crabby, have no time to review the anatomy or procedure, a quick review from recall and you shine in front of attendings. And for John E. Travers yes you OR nurses are vital, but please lose the 'senior perioperative clinician' You absolutely have no authority over me, and stop the power trip with the med students, they might employ you one day. Jason Hunter, M.D.

    He says it like is.

    Having work with this fine physician this book is a bible for medical students who at time have no common sense and as surgeons at times have no social skills,too. The best line is on the top of page 7 '.. the operating room nurss are selfness warriors of the OR and only arguing with them makes matters worst. I underline that in yellow for medical students at UVA HSS to make them aware as I am a senior perioperative clinican, John E. Travers,M.N.,R.N. aka'Redshoes'

    Best Surgical Book

    This book is to the point and cuts to the chase...not really wordy and you don't get lost in the mumbo jumbo of stuff you don't need to know. It covers all of the most pertinent surgery topics and it is easy to read and has related topics together. It is small and can fit in your lab coat and is easy to reference when you need to.

    Excellent

    Initially, I used this book as a side book to a small surgical text, then found it to be more useful then the text itself. It was well focused on the high yield topics and frequently asked questions during surgery and on rounds. I recommend it highly to all medical students doing surgery and studying for the USMLE step 2. Kevin Rabey

    Must Have It...

    Surgical Recall is must have for the surgery rotation. Almost all the questioned asked from students and residents were very similar and some even exactly the ones that are in the book. This is what I used for my final written and oral exam at the end of my rotation. The book is to the point. Great sub-specialty sections.
