"Primary care and emergency room clinicians often need to deal with a variety of acute surgical problems and often do so without the benefit of immediate surgical back-up. Presently available books – ranging from simplistic procedure manuals on the one hand to all-inclusive texts of academic surgery on the other – do not answer the needs of these practitioners. This book bridges the gap between these extremes and provides such clinicians with meaningful and useful information they can immediately put to use."
Different from the typical “how-to-do-it” manual, this book’s unique approach discusses procedures within the context of clinical problems rather than as isolated events. It provides on-the-spot solutions for the acute presentations that require immediate action or referral.
