Surgery Review is a comprehensive review presented in a unique format. Topics are introduced with case presentations and relevant diagnostic and management information is then summarized in easy-to-remember capsules with exam pearls interjected throughout. All areas of general surgery are covered, including the subspecialty areas. There is also a section on basic science found on the in-training exam and written boards, and a section of anesthesia, trauma, and critical care. Unlike many other books, General Surgery Review excludes controversial management in order to present an easy-to-remember foundation of knowledge. Thus, the book focuses on "the basics" to provide the reader with a broad command of the field.
