Part I. Medical Management; Part II. Surgical Procedures and Their Complications.
"The chapters flow smoothly through the perioperative care of virtually all organs and organ systems.... I recomend that this text be available in all medical school libraries. I also recommend it for medical students and medical house officers. Medical Management of the Surgical Patient also belongs in the personal libraries of all clinicians who provide perioperative consultations."
