About this title


In today’s managed-care environment, it’s becoming more and more common: Your patient wants the least traumatic therapy; however, his/her health plan wants the least expensive, and you want the one most likely to produce a favorable long-term outcome but lack the time and resources to research success rates for every available intervention. In the end, you rely on your experience―and perhaps a hasty online search―to arrive at the right course of action, then call on your powers of persuasion to get everyone else on the same page.

If this scenario sounds all too familiar, Prognosis and Outcomes in Surgical Disease is an indispensable reference that will not only help you save time and optimize outcomes, but also facilitate the informed consent process with surgical patients under your care. Edited by Drs. Daniel P. McKellar, Richard B. Reiling, and Ben Eiseman, this book is unique for both its comprehensive scope and diagrammatic approach. In a single, convenient volume, you gain immediate access to concise, algorithmic presentations of expected outcomes for the surgical treatment of more than 150 different conditions, covering 99 percent of all conditions a surgeon may encounter.

Information that used to take hours to uncover is now at your fingertips and accessible at a glance. Furthermore, it is supplied by more than 150 world-renowned experts. Just open the text to the appropriate section, scan the algorithm to assess your options, and consult the shaded outcomes to weigh the pros and cons of the various treatments at your disposal. For easy reference, each disorder commands its own two-page spread, allowing you (and your patient) to compare and contrast therapies quickly, clearly, and objectively.

Prognosis and Outcomes in Surgical Disease is the definitive source for clinical results presented in a pragmatic, user-friendly way!


"This is a welcome addition to a surgeon’s portfolio of textbooks and references. It is clear, concise, and organized in a simple, readable manner. As a reference manual, this text should be beneficial to a broad base of readers including medical students, residents, surgeons, and administrative personnel."
