(no dust jacket, as issued) [nice and clean, essentially as new with no discernible wear]. (B&W drawings, author photo) From the Foreword: "Drs. Kiernan and Hubert were surgical residents when they conceived the idea of putting together an atlas based on the surgical techniques of one of their mentors, Dr. Oliver H. Beahrs, truly a master surgeon, who recently retired from the active staff of the Mayo Clinic after performing some 25,000 operations." Working from their own notes while residents on Dr. Beahrs's service, and "with the addition of expert commentary from Dr. Beahrs," the resulting text "not only emphasizes what is to be done but also details how it is to be done and defines the role of each member of the surgical team. Dr. Beahrs' techniques are based on an exact knowledge of anatomy and reproducible methods of exposure, mobilization, resection, and reconstruction for each operative procedure." A total of eighteen different types of surgery are thus explained, from "Thyroidectomy and Modified Radical Neck Dissection" to "Total Proctocolectomy with Brook Ileostomy or Continent Ileostomy." I'd say that Dr. Beahrs really got around (the human anatomy), so to speak. ***Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order.***
