Dr. Pestana’s Surgery Notes

This book has almost everything you’ll ever need to stay on your toes when the Surgical Attending pimps you out in the OR or out on the floor with tough questions.


You’ll look forward to getting pimped because you’ll know so many of the answers. This books is so good, and its imparted knowledge so useful, it’s almost like cheating. So stop wondering how you’ll survive your Surgery Rotation.

And read this book. You won’t regret it. Quick read and high yield. Made me look less stupid than I actually am. Highly recommend this little book. I did not use any other study materials.

I wish I could give this book a million stars. Yes, it is small. Yes, it is condensed. Carry this around in your white coat and surtery when you get a break. My surgery rotation was so exhausting with hour days so I didn’t have much time to do multiple resources, but instead found that just using this and knowing it verbatim would be the best thing for me.

Nktes used this book as well as surgical recall for my surgery rotation. I really pestqna this book because it’s not written in point form, and for me, it helps to read something in a complete sentence. It goes through the basics of various surgical disciplines. You may not be able to answer ALL the questions your attendings ask, but it will give you a good foundation to maintain a smart “medical” conversation with your attending. This is all you need to do well on the shelf exam.

I usually averaged around 79 or 80 on shelfs- nothing special. But surgery was my second highest score- I got an Kapoan I did was read this book twice it’s short so you better be able to pretty much recite it and suregry the or so UWorld questions for surgery. And of course pay attention on rotation.

But I didn’t like start studying from the beginning of the rotation or anything like that. I’m just a middle of the road medical student. In the preface, Dr.

Pestana makes a point about National Boards and says “their quality control is awesome.

Unfortunately my copy doesn’t have an answer for that question in the key, or any other answers from questions and In fact, many of the pages are missing from the end of the book–not pesyana out, simply blank.

Kaplan’s website seems to be unaware of this deficiency and many of the other problems listed on this book’s negative reviews. It is unfortunate that their quality control doesn’t live up to the author’s standards. This book is near the end of its life cycle, too; with a new edition coming out in Octoberthere’s no reason they should be shipping copies with such obvious errors.


Overall the information in this book is pretty superficial, but is an easy read to introduce the third-year student to surgery. If you want something to prepare for the boards, better to peztana NMS or de Virgilio.

I used this on my Surgery Rotation as a third year medical student and it helped me get honors! The book is thin and small, so it fits well in your white coat pocket. It is pretty general and has a little bit of information from every surgical service. I read this on ksplan first week of my rotation and right before the test, which I think helped.

For my shelf exam, I used this, UWorld, and Firecracker questions and I did well – so I would recommend any 3rd year med student get this! See all reviews.
