Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"Basic anatomy is juxtaposed with surgical procedures with clear illustrations emphasizing the interplay between pathology and surgical oncology in this complete surgery book. . Students of surgery and experienced surgical oncologists will find the book well written and easy to read and understand. . I would recommend this book strongly to surgeons in training and surgical oncology fellows as it provides a needed bridge between anatomy and surgery. . well covered, so this book can replace numerous books from other fields of surgery."
