The Biological Basis of Modern Surgical Practice

Sabiston Textbook of Surgery: The Biological Basis of Modern Surgical Practice  – 18th ed.

“To study the phenomena of disease without books is to sail an uncharted sea”


Sir William Oslf.r (1849-1919)

Surgery continues to evolve as new technology, techniques, and knowledge are incorporated into the care of surgical patients. Safety is paramount in care of our surgical patients. We have included a new chapter in this edition of Sabiston Textbook of Surgery about our roles and responsibilities to ensure safety. Surgeons, traditional leaders in mass casualty situations, face new problems and challenges in the era of bioterrorism.

Distant surgery, employing robotic and telementoring technology, has become a reality. Minimally invasive techniques are being employed in almost all invasive procedures. Increased understanding of molecular genetic abnormalities has expanded the application of preemptive surgical operations to prevent cancer.

The goal of this new edition is to remain the most thorough, useful, readable, and understandable textbook presenting the principles and techniques of surgery. It is designed to be equally useful to students, trainees, and experts in the field.

We are committed to maintaining this tradition of excellence begun in 1936. Surgery, after all, remains a discipline in which the knowledge and skill of a surgeon combine for the welfare of our patients.
