For more than half-a-century, Zollinger's Atlas of Surgical Operations has been the gold-standard reference for learning how to perform the most common surgical procedures using safe, well-established techniques. The ninth edition continues this tradition of excellence with the addition of color illustrations and coverage of more than 230 procedures, including many of the most important laparoscopic operations.
Following the proven effective design of previous editions, each procedure is fully explained on two pages. The right page contains beautifully rendered line drawings with color highlights that depict every important action a surgeon must consider while performing the operation. The facing page includes consistently formatted coverage of indications, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, position, operative preparation, incision and exposure, procedure, closure, and postoperative care.
* Coverage of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, vascular, gynecologic, and additional procedures, including hernia repair, vascular access, breast procedures, sentinel lymph node biopsy, thyroidectomy, and many more
* New: coverage of the latest laparoscopic procedures, including right and left colectomy, distal pancreatectomy with splenic preservation, right and left adrenalectomy, bariatric roux-en-Y gastric bypass and adjustable gastric banding, and more
