The classic step-by-step atlas of general surgery procedures – now in color and updated with the latest laparoscopic operations

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

1615 color-highlighted illustrations

"...a beautifully illustrated atlas of modern surgical procedures....While in other atlases line drawings may simplify and operative photographs may add realism, the illustrations in this atlas allow the surgeon to visualize both the anatomy and the operation. Beyond this, the softly colored illustrations are aesthetically pleasing and invite reading of the accompanying narrative....In sum, while the ninth edition of Zollinger's Atlas of Surgical Operations differs from the early editions in many ways, it nonetheless evokes the enduring qualities of its predecessors and will guide yet another generation of surgeons."—JAMA

For more than half-a-century, Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations has been the gold-standard reference for learning how to perform the most common surgical procedures using safe, well-established techniques. The ninth edition continues this tradition of excellence with the addition of color illustrations and coverage of more than 230 procedures, including many of the most important laparoscopic operations.

Following the proven effective design of previous editions, each procedure is fully explained on two pages. The right page contains beautifully rendered line drawings with color highlights that depict every important action a surgeon must consider while performing the operation. The facing page includes consistently formatted coverage of indications, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, position, operative preparation, incision and exposure, procedure, closure, and postoperative care.


  • Coverage of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, vascular, gynecologic, and additional procedures, including hernia repair, vascular access, breast procedures, sentinel lymph node biopsy, thyroidectomy, and many more
  • New: coverage of the latest laparoscopic procedures, including right and left colectomy, distal pancreatectomy with splenic preservation, right and left adrenalectomy, bariatric roux-en-Y gastric bypass and adjustable gastric banding, and more

Time-tested, updated, and enhanced by color, Zollinger’s remains the ultimate teaching atlas of surgery.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tamsin M Durand, MD/MPH(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This well-illustrated atlas covers most procedures general surgeons will encounter. The detailed, step-by-step illustrations make it an easy quick reference, and the accompanying text also makes it a good sit-down read when time permits. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose is to "document proven and safe operative techniques in common use by general surgeons." A good surgical atlas can be extremely valuable to general surgeons, given the wide range of procedures they may be expected to perform on any given day. This book covers a large number of operative procedures and provides sufficient detail to be an important resource to any general surgeon.
Audience: It is intended for general surgeons in practice and in training.
Features: The atlas covers a broad variety of procedures, from standard inguinal hernia repair to peripheral vascular bypass to laparoscopic colectomy. The authors have added laparoscopic techniques to this edition, and have incorporated stapling devices into their methods. The illustrations are its best feature.
Assessment: This ninth edition nicely incorporates some newer techniques and procedures into its already long list. The illustrations make it well worth having a copy of this book, but a good descriptive textbook that covers the pathophysiology of the underlying disease processes is still a must for all general surgery trainees.
