No student of medicine, past or present, is unaware of
the extraordinary series of medical illustrations created
by Dr. Frank Netter, the master artist-surgeon. This
incredible body of work has since been carried forward
after Dr. Netter’s passing by the talented Carlos
Machado, MD, and others, all remarkably gifted
medical illustrators. Physicians old and young have
looked at these images time and again for the last fi ve
decades, returning to them as comfortable sources of
clear and clinically succinct information. For many of
us, it was this volume that was bought for us by our
parents as our fi rst textbook in medical school, and is
still cherished to this day.
The Netter series of illustrations underwent 19
printings over 56 years but has never undergone a substantive
revision until now. The privilege of editing
this monumental tome has been both daunting and
revealing. Dr. Netter’s art is utterly timeless, highly
exact and informed to the point of being prescient.
How do you improve on a masterpiece? On the
other hand, medicine has change dramatically over
the past fi ve decades since this volume fi rst appeared
and demands that entirely new and previously
uni magined medical knowledge be brought to the
readership. Similar to restoring a da Vinci painting or
translating a Nabokov novel, editing this volume has
highlighted for us both the magnitude of change in
medicine and the timelessness of Dr. Netter’s art. Consistent
with Dr. Netter’s philosophy, we have chosen to
let the art do most of the speaking and have limited the
text to providing context, clarifi cation, and clinical
It is our hope that this work will be as treasured and
as valued as the original, even if it remains clinically
relevant for only a fraction of the time. Join us as we
celebrate the beauty, logic, mystery, complexity, and
artistic richness of clinical medicine illustrated in this
the second edition of the Netter Collection.
