CSAT Publications

Up until his death in 2009, CSAT founding director Dr. John Skandalakis was coauthor of virtually all of the books, chapters, journal articles, and editorials that were published under the auspices of the Carlos and Davis Center for Surgical Anatomy and Technique.

Many of the publications were definitive for their time, and several—such as the books Embryology for Surgeons, Anatomical Complications in General Surgery, and Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual—were translated into numerous languages and used in medical schools and hospitals around the world.
