Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a wonderful addition to the literature in the field of surgery. … For residents, this book is an invaluable resource to guide discussion with patients during the informed consent process. Similarly, for practicing surgeons, it provides estimated frequencies of surgical complications that allows for more informative risk/benefit discussions with patients and their families. … There is no other resource that compiles all of this information into one, easy-to-read book.” (Luis J. Garcia, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
