Scientific American Surgery Returns! Decker Intellectual Properties Inc. has signed a licensing agreement with Scientific American to re-establish the comprehensive professional surgical database, Scientific American Surgery. First published in 1989 under the name Care of the Surgical Patient, now includes an enhanced surgical offering through this agreement with Scientific American. For the past eleven years (2002-2013), the resource was known as American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgery.
Scientific American Surgery has a reputation of providing practicing surgeons and students with comprehensive and up-to-date surgical information. Now, Scientific American will offer the editors of SAS access to Scientific American Magazine's vast archive and cutting-edge reporting to incorporate relevant articles into the surgical database.
Scientific American Surgery is a continuously updated online resource. It covers all subspecialties of surgery plus Competency-Based Surgical Care, Care in Special Situations, Scientific Foundations, and Organ Systems. SAS provides clear and actionable diagnostic and procedural recommendations.
