From the reviews:
"This is a guide to clinical strategy for the general surgeon employing minimal access surgery. … Contemporary trainees in general surgery and senior practitioners … will benefit from this work from an international group of experts with a significant number of contributors from the University of Iowa. … Discussion of treatment alternatives is clear and the review of evidence is excellent. Dr. Scott-Conner and her contributors place an important technique in context for trainees and practitioners."(David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2008)
The SAGES Manual of Strategic Decision Making: Case Studies in Minimal Access Surgery is an excellent resource and clinical decision-making tool for general surgeons and residents. While other SAGES manuals simply discuss core topics in minimally-invasive surgery and GI endoscopy, this unique book explores fifty scenarios with a focus on the decision process that leads to an optimal treatment plan. The case-based format creates a quick and easy-to-read text that is rooted in real life scenarios in general and laparoscopic surgery and the strategic decisions every surgeon must learn to make. Each of the fifty thought-provoking cases is concisely presented with illustrated surgical techniques and an evidence-based review of related literature. The SAGES Manual of Strategic Decision Making is an unparalleled teaching aid for residents and faculty alike, as well as an indispensable resource for practicing surgeons who can appreciate and learn from the strategies offered by their colleagues.
