Dr. V. Suzanne Klimberg co-authored “Fisher’s | Mastery of Surgery, Eighth Edition” which was recently published. Dr. Klimberg applied her vast knowledge of breast oncology to the manuscript. 

This book is the third in a series and Dr. Klimberg has been collaborating with other co-authors for the last year. She has 18 books to her credit. 

For four decades, Fischer's Mastery of Surgery has been a vital resource for surgeons and trainees. The eighth edition, fully revised, offers clear, step-by-step depictions of essential procedures, incorporating evidence-based approaches. New sections on perioperative and critical care, along with over 2,600 illustrations, make it a trusted guide for mastering surgical techniques. 

A message from Dr. Klimberg: 

"This edition of Mastery has been totally revised with stunning surgical anatomy and technique illustrations."
