Reviews

From the reviews: “This is a concise, portable surgery reference for residents, fellows, and attendings. … This book covers a wide range of the most commonly performed procedures in general surgery. … The information is presented in a clear and concise manner and the layout is logical. One of its best attributes is its portability, which enables readers to use this book during brief downtimes and between cases. Overall, it is very useful for students and residents in general surgery.” (Vanessa Rae Humphreville, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2010)
