An extraction of all surgery-related information from the key reference text 'French's Index of Differential Diagnosis'.
'French's Index of Differential Diagnosis' is a key Butterworth-Heinemann medical text, catering as it does for all the medical and surgical subspecialties. About 30% of the content of the book relates to surgical conditions and their differential diagnosis.
A new book based on the larger text, 'French's Index of Surgical Differential Diagnosis' extracts the surgical conditions and presents them in a more synoptic form for those specifically interested in the surgical content.
