Surgery: Evidence-Based Practice
Surgery: Evidence-Based Practice posits that data can guide the experienced surgeon, as well as the novice learner, through the management and treatment of surgical diseases.
The authors’ guiding principle in preparing this volume was to present a dynamic, comprehensive reference focused on important surgical questions about each disease. Each chapter is organized around the key questions essential to delineating the current status of evidence related to the subject reviewed. Publications from the past decade are cited that provide Level I and II evidence using the Oxford scale.
The information presented in this volume guides the scientific surgeon in providing state-of-the-art care, optimizing the use of medical resources, and addressing the unique needs of individual patients.
