The 19th edition of the Sabiston Textbook of Surgery includes fundamental medical knowledge which is tremendous useful to all. It begins, as is traditional, with a history of surgery and ethics, and then gives an overview of molecular and cellular biology before moving on to customary surgical tenets such as metabolic support and wound healing. Subsequent sections deal with perioperative management, trauma and transplantation and oncology, breast, endocrine, and abdominal procedures before dividing into surgery subspecialties such as head and neck, thoracic, vascular, urology and neurosurgery.
