Surgical ethics is the application of ethics to issues specific to surgery. This volume provides a collection of clinical case studies representing a wide range of the ethical issues surgeons confront today. It is an excellent text for teaching surgical ethics to surgical residents and medical students and a fascinating read for practicing surgeons. It is intended to engage the reader into participating in evidence-based ethical conflicts. The authors escort us through 71 brief, realistic, and ethically complex problems, offering a series of five possible resolutions to each and guiding us through the relative benefits and weaknesses of the options until a best ethical choice is defended. The volume includes sections on Consent and Disclosure, Self-Regulation, Research and Innovation, Conflicts of Interest, Business Dealings, and End of Life Issues, each with a brief introduction by the authors.

Review:


"This book is a needed addition to the growing body of work focused on a particular specialty in healthcare. It will be an invaluable tool for surgeons and those involved in the formation of future surgeons, not only as technicians, but as those charged with upholding the virtues which engender the trust of their patients."--Doody's - a 5 star review!


"Anyone who thinks the field of medical ethics is wishy-washy and fuzzy will be challenged by this book. The authors take on hard cases and give hard answers. The case format is perfect for discussion in academic centers and for residents as part of professional competency training. The book provides a thoughtful and interesting case-oriented approach to contemporary medical ethics in general."--New England Journal of Medicine


"The beauty of this book is that it speaks in the language of surgeons as well as ethicists. The level of clinical detail in the cases allows each to hit the resident or practicing surgeon very close to him. The ethical analysis, while brief, shows a broad familiarity with the ethics literature. Furthermore, there are many references to episodes in surgical history, grounding the discourse in a historical context--a strategy endearing to the heart of every surgeon....This collection of cases and analyses goes a long way in laying the foundation for a generation of surgeons who must cultivate the virtues necessary to care for the surgical patient."--Ethics and Medicine
