The author deviates in this book from the usual scheme of dealing with the various disorders according to the organs involved. Instead, he takes up characteristic syndromes and discusses their connection with the causation. This method corresponds with his intention to furnish practical information to the average physician, and results in a succinct survey of all that surgery offers in the treatment of genito-urinary diseases. In qualifying indications and operations, the author employs sound and sober reasoning.
