Editorial Reviews

Review

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)

From the Back Cover

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.

More About the Author

I graduated from New York University College of Medicine in 1976 and completed my surgical residency there in 1981. I was one of the last physicians to train in the "old" Bellevue Hospital. At that time, very few women entered general surgery. I have spent my life in academic surgery, operating and teaching others the science and art of surgery. When I was appointed Head of the Department of Surgery at the University of Iowa in 1995, I was the second woman in the history of American Surgery to attain such a position. My nine textbooks all share the goal of teaching surgery in clear, lucid language. My most recent book, A Few Small Moments, is a collection of short stories. I live in Iowa City with my husband.

This book has words in it! Yay for me!!!!!!!

I was going to start doing Lap choles at home for my friends (especially Bobby). I am currently an over-the-road truck driver so I needed a "how to." In other words, i wanted to perform surgery, but my truck-driver training did not provide me the tools to performs these doo-hickeys. I tried watching videos on Youtube, but still had a question regarding the correct placement of the trocars. So I bought this book! And now I know what to do! Yay for me (and Bobby)

I have purchased a machine so I can perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographies. I had been using Coleman lamp wicks for bile leaks, but this book gave me the idea to perform ERCPs.

I have to go.
