Surgery [With CDROM] by Jeffrey A. Norton, R. Randal Bollinger

An up-to-the-minute, clinically oriented, and encyclopedic textbook of general surgery for all surgical residents, general surgeons, and medical students. Divided into eight sections, the text brings together the emerging leaders in surgery to concisely present and synthesize the key issues in the different surgical disciplines. Each chapter presents anatomy, physiology and associated scientific development, disease etiology and prevention, appropriate diagnostic procedures, treatment of benign and malignant disease, and well illustrated, technical discussion of how-to-do surgery. Color-coded tables summarize the evidence currently available for a wide variety of surgical treatment options. The text is augmented by a specially comisioned art program with more than 1000 illustrations to clearly depict surgical techniques. A CD-ROM packaged with the text provides a hypertext link to PubMed for every reference - invaluable for research.
