Reviews of "Surgery":
"…a fresh approach… [the book] emphasizes the basic science underlying the practice of surgery and the evidence supporting clinical decisions. The text is clearly written and the chapters are well-illustrated. There is also a unique feature: several hundred evidence-based tables. These tables allow the reader to reach conclusions on the basis of data."
( New England Journal of Medicine)
"Is it different from the existing textbooks of surgery? Did the authors achieve their principal goal of providing an evidence-based approach to surgical decision making? Would I recommend it to the surgical residents in my program?…the answer to all these questions is yes. The ambitious undertaking of creating an evidence-based textbook of surgery has largely succeeded and I heartily recommend it."
