Modern Surgical Care
Physiologic Foundations and Clinical Applications
Third Editon
2-Volume Set
edited by Thomas A. Miller

Modern Surgical Care assists surgeons in the diagnosis and treatment of patients by considering disease as a derangement of normal physiology, thus allowing the surgeon to correlate the appropriate use of laboratory and radiologic modalities.

Arranged according to specific organ systems, Modern Surgical Care is easily accessible and reflects the impact that scientific discoveries and technical advances have had on our understanding of the physiologic processes in surgical patients.
