"The Surgical Review, 2nd Edition"
published by Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins, August 2005 Following the tradition set forth in 2000, the second edition has been re-written in its entirety by the residents and faculty of the Department of Surgery at Penn under the guidance of Dr. Larry R. Kaiser to provide a comprehensive and easy to follow surgical text to address the educational needs of medical students, residents and attendings. This is the most comprehensive review available today for the resident-in-training exam as well as review for re-certification. The book covers both surgical basic science as well as clinical aspects.
