The Ethics of Surgery

Conflicts and Controversies

Edited by Robert M. Sade, M.D.

  • Surgical ethics was only recently recognized as a subdivision of biomedical ethics; few other books specifically address this field.
  • Most of the articles in the book are debates, a format that emphasizes the wide range of controversies that characterize contemporary biomedical ethics.
  • Most of the authors of the papers are surgeons, giving a real-world cast to the discussions and arguments; the exchanges are enriched by an admixture of lawyers, sociologists, philosophers and others with expertise in ethics.
