The Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank H. Netter, MD, has been the pinnacle of demonstrating the anatomy of the human body for generations of students. To those who would wish to perform or understand surgical procedures, however, there has been no direct link between the beautiful images created by Dr. Netter and the surgical procedures being performed. In Netter’s Surgical Anatomy and Approaches, we try to address a request by many Netter users to tie these anatomical diagrams to the procedures they perform.
This book presents the curriculum of basic and common general surgical procedures in chapters that portray the relevant anatomy for each procedure.
In his very first edition, Dr. Netter stated that “anatomy of course does not change, but our understanding of anatomy and its clinical significance does.” Consequently, in some cases we have been able to pair the anatomy demonstrated in his illustrations with a modern intraoperative photograph or radiographic image. For some chapters, a new Netter-style illustration has been created to demonstrate a key anatomical point for an operative procedure or to show a key surgical perspective or orientation that is not captured in the original Netter images. The result is a volume that covers the most important and commonest areas in surgery, addressing common procedures in the head and neck, endocrine surgery, upper and lower gastrointestinal surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, surgery for hernias, vascular surgery, access and emergency procedures, breast and oncology surgery, and urology and gynecology.
