About this book

A symptom-based version of the critically-acclaimed Norton/Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence, Learning Surgery provides a ready reference to those in third and fourth year residencies. Essential algorithms and case presentations meet with clerkship learning objectives as outlined by the Association of Surgical Education in their ASE Manual. Two sections include Introduction to Clinical Surgery in the Surgical Clerkship Setting and Management of Surgical Diseases During the Clerkship. Chapters include: Stroke, Hypertension, Abdominal Masses, Head Injuries, and Burns. Written by leading clinicians and educators, both surgery residents and medical students will find LEARNING SURGERY indispensible in their rotations and clerkships. Surgeons who train residents will also find the text a valuable ajunct to their teaching.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book includes two parts consisting of forty two chapters authored by experts from the USA. It covers core concepts and common problems of surgical practice. This textbook is dedicated to surgical trainees and general residents faced with occasional surgical problems. … Overall, this book has a good quality text and some excellent key point algorithm treating general surgical problems and even specialized features as transplantation. … this textbook should be recommended to surgical trainees and referring non-surgical-physicians." (Dr. V. Thill, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 106 (1), 2006)

"This is a well-presented volume. There is a very good presentation of each chapter with objectives at the beginning and a clear summary at the end. It is nice that there are case presentations at the beginning of each chapter … that keeps the reader interested. There is frequent use of diagrams and flow charts to convey management plans. … It is a book to be referred to … ." (Brian Rees, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 89, March, 2007)
