About this book

A condensed version of the critically acclaimed "Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence," Essential Practice of Surgery provides a state-of-the-art, evidence-based approach to surgery for surgeons, residents and medical students. The book is divided into 8 comprehensive sections, providing the most succinct coverage of critical topics: Care of the Surgical Patient; Gastrointestinal & Abdominal Disease; Endocrine Surgery; Vascular Surgery; Cardiothoracic Surgery; Transplantation; Cancer; and Associated Disciplines. Over 250 illustrations and 340 tables, including 62 evidence-based tables, complement the text.

Reviews of "Surgery":
"...a fresh approach... [the book] emphasizes the basic science underlying the practice of surgery and the evidence supporting clinical decisions. The text is clearly written and the chapters are well-illustrated. There is also a unique feature: several hundred evidence-based tables. These tables allow the reader to reach conclusions on the basis of data."
( New England Journal of Medicine)

"Is it different from the existing textbooks of surgery? Did the authors achieve their principal goal of providing an evidence-based approach to surgical decision making? Would I recommend it to the surgical residents in my program?...the answer to all these questions is yes. The ambitious undertaking of creating an evidence-based textbook of surgery has largely succeeded and I heartily recommend it."
(Journal of the American Medical Association)

Reviews

From the reviews:

"During a period of numerous adventures into the textbook arena, this is different in focus and quality. Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence is reader friendly with excellent illustrations and 200 evidence-based tables. Both new and old topics are effectively covered to avoid redundancy." (Archives of Surgery)

"Essential Practice of Surgery, comprises an edited version of the fifty-seven most critical chapters from the first edition of the textbook. These chapters provide concise, abbreviated formats of the material for quick reference. The level of information contained should be useful for student surgery courses and for board review. … Evidence-based tables are included in many chapters. … Each chapter concludes with a reference list. Recommended for medical students, surgeons and hospital and medical libraries." (Eileen Heaser, E-STREAMS, Vol. 7 (1), January, 2004)
