From the Back Cover:

"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.

Features:
*What every clinician--regardless of specialty--needs to know about surgery
*Perfect for use in the office, the ER, or on surgical rotations
*All-original illustrations highlight key procedural steps
*Provides guidelines on procedure/referral decisions and follow-up care

Topics covered include:
*anesthesia
*suturing techniques and materials
*acute abdominal pain
*burns
*lacerations
*fractures
*dislocations
*abscesses
*trauma resuscitation
*spontaneous abortion
*more

Other titles in the 20 Common Problems series include Dermatology, Ethics, Pediatrics, Preventive Health, Primary Care, Surgery, Urology, and Women's Health.

Review:

"The well-done diagrams and illustrations elucidate the material under discussion. When more clarification is required, there are both black and white and color photographs of excellent quality." "I believe all primary care providers will find this book informative." "I would want this reference book in my library." (Journal of the American Board of Family Practice 2002-03-01)
