A condensed version of the critically acclaimed "Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence," Essential Practice of Surgery provides a state-of-the-art, evidence-based approach to surgery for surgeons, residents and medical students. The book is divided into 8 comprehensive sections, providing the most succinct coverage of critical topics: Care of the Surgical Patient; Gastrointestinal & Abdominal Disease; Endocrine Surgery; Vascular Surgery; Cardiothoracic Surgery; Transplantation; Cancer; and Associated Disciplines. Over 250 illustrations and 340 tables, including 62 evidence-based tables, complement the text. Reviews of "Surgery": "...a fresh approach... [the book] emphasizes the basic science underlying the practice of surgery and the evidence supporting clinical decisions. The text is clearly written and the chapters are well-illustrated. There is also a unique feature: several hundred evidence-based tables. These tables allow the reader to reach conclusions on the basis of data." ( New England Journal of Medicine) "Is it different from the existing textbooks of surgery? Did the authors achieve their principal goal of providing an evidence-based approach to surgical decision making? Would I recommend it to the surgical residents in my program?...the answer to all these questions is yes. The ambitious undertaking of creating an evidence-based textbook of surgery has largely succeeded and I heartily recommend it." (Journal of the American Medical Association)
