In these interesting clinics are set forth the surgical methods which have been successful in the hands of John F. Erdmann. They are based chiefly on shorthand reports of Dr. Erdmann's lectures given to the students in the surgical seminar at the New York Post-Graduate School and represent the mature experience obtained in forty years of successful surgical practice. The fifty-four subjects discussed cover a wide field of surgery and include the differential diagnosis of pancreatic disorders, gallstones, carcinoma of the stomach, duodenal ulcer, cancer of the rectum, intestinal obstruction, bladder tumors, uterine fibroid, hernia, and breast tumors. The presentations are brief and clear and should prove of value not only to surgeons but to general practitioners as well.
