Surgeons, especially those in training, often consult a number of printed resources to prepare for an operation, commonly a surgical atlas, surgical textbook, and sometimes an anatomy text and atlas. A few excellent texts combine features of a surgical text with those of a surgical atlas, but until the appearance of this book, none has combined all four resources in a single volume.

This outstanding book provides a wealth of information in both printed and graphic form combining all four genres: anatomic drawings and excellent illustrations of surgical techniques—most muticolored—and text that describes diseases and surgical approaches. The work is the result of the editorial and artistic skills of Dr William C. Wood, a preeminent surgical oncologist, and Dr John E. Skandalakis, a superb anatomist and professor of surgery, both from Emory University.
