Product Description


"Doherty and Way (surgery, U. of Michigan and U. of California, San Francisco, respectively) bring together 47 chapters by surgeons and medical practitioners from the US who discuss the diagnosis and treatment of about 1000 diseases and disorders. The focus is on major diagnostic features and brief descriptions of disease processes. Epidemiology, pathophysiology, pathology, and general medical and surgical topics are incorporated. Chapters are grouped by organ system as well as by topics such as preparation, postoperative care, surgical complications, and pediatric surgery. This edition has been updated to cover modern surgical care, including colon/rectal surgery, and new information on power sources in the operating room. The chapter on special problems, including pregnancy and older patients, has been rewritten. Other revisions are to chapters on injured patients, the esophagus and diaphragm, the liver and portal venus systems, oncology, and organ transplantation." Sci-Tech Book News 20061201

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
the book looks new than it described before order and the first owner was probably scholar.The the sides and angles of the cover have been well protected with transparent type.
The somethings inside looks better without any writing mark,highlight and joggling .Delivery tends to be earlier than expected.
I value it more than expected...

I am a third-year medical student and this book was the PERFECT resource for my Surgery rotation. It was complete without being overly detailed. I highly recommend it.

Great for Surgical Clerkships! Sept. 29 2007
By Knife in Training - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent resource for your surgical clerkship. A little bulky for the wards, but it does provide enough information to get through the tiring weeks without losing more sleep at home wading through unnecessarily verbose descriptions. There's enough information to cover patients pre-op to post-op, equally useful on the floors and in the ICU. I highly recommend this book for 3rd and 4th year med students and those beyond looking for something less weighty than Sabiston's but comparably dense with information.

This is an excellent prep for a general surgery rotation. It reviews all the anatomy and then all of the pathology that is associated with each body section. Very well organized.
