"Operation Health—the first book of its kind on global surgery—will advance the field substantially. An excellent piece of scholarship, this book will appeal to surgeons and non-surgeons, policy makers and funders, and public health, medical, and nursing students."

"Makes a passionate plea for greater access to surgery and describes populations with potentially debilitating yet readily treatable conditions... Chapters are effectively written to combine human interest with essential technical detail."

"[Kushner] has weaved science, evidence, global surgery, and public health in a journalistic, readable style. In this 100 page account of the importance of surgery for global health, Kushner's editing was as sharp as his scalpel, but with the hope of good surgical outcomes for all."

"For [those] who work in surgical areas in UK healthcare this book is a must read."
