About this book


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.
