Review Text

"Although this book is intended for surgical residents(and some may find it useful), it is most appropriate for third-and fourth-year medical students (such as those doingsub-internships). It would be a valuable addition to other booksthat are standard for this demographic (e.g., Surgical Recall , 6th edition,Blackbourne (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012)." ( Doody's , 21 March 2014)

"Surgery at a Glance deserves ongoing recommendation as itappears in an updated new fifth edition to provide students with asummary of a comprehensive lecture course in surgery. It s arrangedin an at a glance format, which provides quick visuals and easykeys to understanding, with key facts supplementing discussions ofmajor surgical conditions. New chapters on Orthopaedics, updates onpost-surgery management, and a website packed with supportiveresources to the text makes for a volume filled with importantinsights any student will find important."
