"Pocket Surgery" is the surgical consult that goes with you anywhere! Prepared by residents and attending physicians at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, "Pocket Surgery" follows the style of the best-selling "Pocket Medicine", popular among medical students, interns, and residents. The book's convenient size and loose-leaf format makes it perfect for use on the wards or as a review for Board exams. "Pocket Surgery" was developed to maximize the efficiency of the student and trainee - to maximize the yield of reading and reference, to be better prepared for time in the operating room or on the ward. Get all the fundamentals of surgery in one pocket reference! Features: bulleted lists, tables, and algorithms make essential facts easy to find and retain; concise and focused content reviews the entire field of surgery-including breast, critical care, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, colorectal, vascular, pediatric, plastic, transplant, and endocrine; and specialty and organ-based chapters allow for a quick review before starting a new surgical service.


"This book is great for ease of use and reference. It contains a wealth of details that are pertinent for patient care. It also provides the background for understanding the disease processes that we see in general surgery. The appendix will be particularly useful for an intern making decisions and having to look up dosages. I don't believe there are many small pocket books as good as this one. I recommend it if one has minimal resources and can only buy one book." ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 84 - 3 Stars -Doody Enterprises, Inc.
