Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the third edition: “A longstanding key resource for residents and general surgeons, in user-friendly pocket-manual format, this latest edition is thoroughly revised, with many new illustrations. The authors … keep content relevant, fresh and practice-based; new topics include carotid endarterectomy, hysterectomy and oophorectomy. Existing chapters have been updated to reflect current surgical approaches.” (Times Higher Education, February, 2010)

From the Back Cover

Generations of residents and general surgeons have relied upon and worn out their copies of Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual. Thoroughly revised and with dozens of new illustrations, the third edition continues the tradition of providing a concise, accessible, and generously illustrated memory refresher for both novice and experienced clinicians.

The authors have included techniques to keep the content fresh, relevant, and practice-based. Among the new topics are abdominal aortic aneurysm, femoropopliteal bypass, carotid endarterectomy, hysterectomy and oophorectomy. All the existing chapters have been updated to reflect current surgical approaches and instrumentation.

Surgical Anatomy and Technique provides the gold standard in correlating clear, practical anatomy with the correct technique in the pursuit of the best possible patient outcomes. This handy pocket manual remains a "must have" for every resident and general surgeon.

Format: Paperback
This book serves as the guide to surgical pimping for medical students. This allowed me to enter cases with a clear understanding of the anatomy of the case and an incite into the techniques that we would be using.

This is an excellent book! Outlining the steps of general surgery procedures, explaining significant anatomy to know and vessels to watch out for. This is a must have for any surgical student! The size is also good, can't be carried in the pocket but small enough to bring into the surgical suites.

this is kind of a "how to do it" type book as opposed to something like surgical recall. provides an overview of the anatomy and the operation itself. i wish i had purchased this earlier on as it really gives you a better idea to what's going on in the OR if you've never seen a certain case before. highly recommended for students who might be interested in surgery!

amazon really needs to change this error in the title where it says "lecture notes in mathematics!!"

excellent book. one of the best I have ever used, especially for surgical technique... you get everything focused on how to do the case... anatomy well presented with pics and more importantly focused on the surgery.. not just presented for the sake of it..
covering a wide range of procedures, will not disappoint at all!

This is an important reference for medical students and residents. It is helpful for developing an understanding of the anatomy of classic general surgery cases. Wonderful bridge from medical school classroom to the operating room.

i bought this for my husband, who is a surgical assistant. he mentioned that this book is practically the horn book on surgery, though we were thrown off by the description of "(lecture notes in mathematics)". thankfully the book arrived complete as viewed from the image, but for the life of us, we still do not know what the lecture in notes in mathematics is supposed to refer to.

You DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT need this for clerkship m3. No one actually expects m3 to know this amount of detail or technique and it is NOT what you will be graded or tested on.

Also the only pocket this thing fits in is maybe Paul Bunyan - it's HUGE for a 'pocket manual'.

The kindle/iPad version costs 44 but you basically get an enormous PDF that seems like a kindergartner ported it. No proper table of contents. No way to access a certain procedure without flipping past thirty pages. It takes so long to find what im looking for that i might as well put the ipad down and go online. Poor text porting with all sorts of typographic inserts and deletion s that were ever edited when imported from the original text. Really a poor effort and I'm sorry I bought it.
