Summary:
Pity those patients and caregivers who experience enough surgery first-
or second-hand
to have frequent need of this three-volume reference; but if going under
the knife
(or laser) is necessary, this reference helps with the details of 265
surgeries,
providing enough information for readers who wish to be knowledgeable
consumers without
being overwhelmed. Descriptions of surgeries follow a clear format that
includes
discussion of the procedure's purpose and demographics and information
about diagnosis
and preparation, who performs the procedure and where, aftercare, risks,
normal results,
morbidity and mortality rates, and alternatives. Entries also include
definitions of
key terms, questions to ask the doctor, and listings of resources (books
as well as
organizations for support and further information). In addition to
entries describing
surgeries, another 200 entries cover relevant general topics such as
anesthesia,
second opinions, admission to the hospital, and preparation for surgery.
A roster of
medical writers and practitioners contributed to the work, which was
prepared under
the leadership of Anthony J. Senagore (Cleveland Clinic Foundation).
