This new book Technical Advances in Surgery, Trauma, and Critical Care edited by Rifat Latifi , Peter Rhee, and Rainer Gruessner is truly a unique contribution. The editors have assembled a work that champions new technology and innovations that have recently occurred throughout surgery. Reading the chapters is like taking a trip to a world’s fair and being exposed to the frontiers of surgical practice. I will never forget going to the GE Exhibit at the World’s Fair in Flushing, New York, in 1964 with my parents and feeling I had glimpsed into the future. I had that same feeling reading many of these chapters 50 years later.
This book explores a vision of a new hospital, the use of performance improvement techniques, and new concepts such as taking the injured patient directly to the operating room. The importance of nanotechnology, genomics, and proteomics for disease staging, treatment selection, and individualized surgical treatment is covered. A modern academic department to support this kind of innovation and care delivery is also described.
A significant part of the book is dedicated to specific aspects of the biology of surgery, including genetics, tissue repair, rejection, immunosuppression, resuscitation end points, and damage control resuscitation.
A majority of the text brings us up to the date on what is new with head and neck cancer, neurosurgery, endocrine surgery, and innovations in pulmonary, cardiac, and abdominal surgery. The innovations accompanying the use of robotic surgery and natural orifice surgery are highlighted in each of these areas, and exciting, evolutionary themes are addressed for each.
Telepresence is reviewed for what it currently is and can be in the future, and the ethics of surgery are discussed with appropriate emphasis.
Surgery is going through a continuous evolution, emphasizing more precise, less invasive, more organ specific, and less painful procedures. At a time when it is often popular to complain about health care in general and the economic challenges we face, this book celebrates our remarkable success and will challenge your imagination about the bright future of surgery and the benefits we can provide to patients. This will stimulate your recommitment to the best profession of all.
