As patients and their caregivers consider the best course of action for medical issues, they weigh the benefits and risks associated with surgical solutions. Written especially for patients and allied health care students by experts in the field, The Gale Encyclopedia of Surgery and Medical Tests, 4th Edition provides in-depth coverage of more than 650 surgical procedures, medical tests and related topics such as anesthetics, common lab tests and procedures, medications and postoperative care. 

Recently, Library Journal published a review of the eBook, calling it “comprehensible” and “appealing”:

“Hiam and her contributors have effectively eschewed medical jargon for comprehensible language, making the material here accessible and appealing to high school and undergraduate students.” 
 – Laurie Selwyn, formerly with Grayson County Law Library, Sherman, TX

Kudos to the Gale content team who helped make this eBook great!
