"First do no harm. Sometimes doctors are required not to do what patients ask for, because their professional assessment of the request is that it will cause harm, not good." Did you know that surgeons can now operate on babies before they are even born? Or that robot surgeons already perform a variety of operations? So, what are the possibilities or the drawbacks of such advances in surgery? The Science at the Edge series is about developments and theories in science that are both interesting and sometimes cause for concern. Each book in the series explains how the science was discovered, how it works, how it can help people, and why it may not be completely accepted by everyone.

Baker & Taylor
A comprehensive look at surgery describes its history, the technological innovations related to the field, equipment used to perform surgery, and case histories of successful and unsuccessful surgeries.
