New Look for AccessSurgery

AccessSurgeryAccessSurgery has moved to a new platform! The popular online resource provides medical students, surgical residents, and practicing surgeons with quick answers to surgical inquiries from authoritative sources. The content is basically the same and includes surgical textbooks, such as Schwartz’s Principles of Surgery and Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations. You’ll also find an extensive collection of images and surgical videos, case files, drug information, patient handouts, and more.

New features come with the new platform:
