Looking for a quick reference for review before performing an operation or taking the boards? You won’t find a better resource thanScott-Conner & Dawson:Essential Operative Techniques and Anatomy, 4eand its accompanying online component. Expanded to 134 chapters and enhanced by new color photos and new contributing authors, this edition is an up-to-date, easy-to-use reference to both the surgical technique and the relevant anatomy of nearly all the procedures you will face.
This is the fourth edition. I’ve completely updated all of the procedures, added a lot, and coordinated it with the SCORE(TM) curriculum categories. Lots of photos have been added, and many new color drawings. This book is different from all my other textbooks in its emphasis on anatomy. It is a combination of a surgical textbook/atlas and a surgical anatomy book.
This book relates in a very clear way surgical anatomy and more than essential surgical techniques. The gynecological part is too short, and probably related to the subspecialization in this field in the USA. As we say textbooks and drawings never lie in surgery, this is confirmed here. There are many related chapters accessible on line for buyers of the original version. It’s a good value for money, even in Euros at the present time.
It is a true shame that I have to give this book 2 stars. The writing is fabulous and the diagrams are great. The explanations for the surgical indications and the procedures are also wonderful….extremely useful. Nevertheless, as mentioned in a previous review, many chapters of common procedures for a general surgery resident (i.e. parotidectomy) are e-chapters. The Echapters would be fine and useful if I could download a pdf version to read on my iPad. However, they are only viewable in the LWW proprietary flash viewer which is buggy, not useable on my iPad, and is only accessible until this version is updated which means eventually you will lose access to much of the chapters of the book. A much smarter idea for LWW would have been to include an Inkling ebook version of this with purchase of hardcopy so that you could lighten your load while allowing the chapters to be easily accessible. Truly a lost opportunity.
Regardless, even though the content included is great this is low value for the fact that you will have a hard time getting to some chapters. Steer clear of this book and find another descriptive operative technique book. Consider Operative techniques in Surgery by Mulholland, its excellent includes a useable and awesome ebook version with print, and you won’t get screwed out of chapters
