First published in 1936, the Sabiston Textbook has served generations of surgeons as the defining text in the field. The 17th Edition carries on this distinguished legacy, presenting the world's most thorough, useful, readable, and understandable coverage of the principles and techniques of surgery. Sweeping changes include comprehensive updates to reflect the latest knowledge and techniques...a new, full-color page layout for enhanced ease of reference... a new image bank CD-ROM containing over 1,300 illustrations, intraoperative photographs, tables, diagnostic images, graphs, pie charts, algorithms, and anatomical drawings all downloadable to Powerpoint presentations.

Excerpt from Claude Organ Foreword
"The 17th edition of Townsend: Sabiston Textbook of Surgery represents an historical landmark. . . The Editors have brought to this bold departure from previous editions significant clinical and research experience and important elements of balanced functionality---information that is useful to the practitioner, resident, and student. . . An outstanding group of diverse contributors. . .all well-informed and known major contributors to their fields."

Review:

"A superbly written clinical authority, replete with supportive basic science data and strong background in surgical history. It is an up-to-date textbook and invaluable reference for the practicing surgeon. This textbook is sure to take its place among the finest ever published for general surgeons."-JAMA "A brief review such as this cannot do justice to a textbook that is sure to take its place among the finest ever published for general surgeons...marvel at the quality of the information presented by the authors, the outstanding editorship, the superb illustrations, and, by the way, the modest cost in a time of escalating and often unaffordable prices for medical students and residents."-JAMA
