Review quote

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." (Neal Wilkinson, Doody's Review Service, May, 2010)
