About this Textbook

The operating room can be an intimidating place for medical students. Preparing to scrub in on a case requires pulling together information from multiple sources on anatomy, pathology, physiology, yet none truly fit the needs of the surgical student. Surgery: An Introductory Guide for Medical Students 2nd Edition, written expressly for students, fills this void by providing an all-in-one reference in a unified, concise, and portable format. 

The operations covered represent the breadth of general surgery. Each chapter provides focused information on the pathophysiology relevant to the corresponding procedure. The main steps of each case are described, allowing the student to follow along and interact with the surgical team.  A color diagram of the operative field from the vantage point of the surgeon accompanies every chapter. Radiologic imaging highlighting key findings are provided. The most common post-operative complications and their clinical presentation are also detailed. Each chapter concludes with a description of a classic patient case, a list of top questions likely to be posed to students, and an essential knowledge checklist.

Written by Dr. Sarpel, a general surgery residency program director with multiple teaching awards, Surgery: An Introductory Guide for Medical Students 2nd Edition provides the critical content students need to succeed in their surgical clerkship.
