This third edition of the classic Physiologic Basis of Surgery nicely achieves its purpose of providing a strong foundation in basic science enabling surgeons to better comprehend the clinical disorders that we treat. The text is clear and appropriately illustrated and seems quite complete.

An all-star lineup of 85 experts contribute 26 chapters, ranging from "Cell Biology," "Fluid and Electrolytes," and "Wound Healing Biology" through chapters devoted to each organ system to concluding chapters on aging and surgical technology.
