"...an important addition to the books used by students, residents, and practicing surgeons in a variety of settings. It is well done, concise, and presents a tremendous amount of information that is easily reviewed in a short period of time. Dr. Makary is to be complimented for this contribution." — John L. Cameron



General Surgery Review is a comprehensive review presented in a unique case-based format. Topics are summarized in easy-to-remember capsules with exam pearls interjected throughout.

A "quick-read" —the book can serve as a last minute study aid or a general framework for learning about the field of surgery, including a relevant review of all relevant subspecialties. Unlike many other books, General Surgery Review excludes controversial management in order to present an easy-to-remember foundation of knowledge. Thus, the book focuses on "the basics" to provide the reader with a broad command of the field.

Martin A. Makary, a general surgeon at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, has assembled the review in conjunction with his colleagues and many other national experts.



  • Excellent subspecialty reviews
  • Recurring high-yield facts
  • Over 800 case-based questions
