Essential General Surgical Operations

Paperback
Essential General Surgical Operations has been specifically produced to meet the needs of the basic surgical trainee who is looking for a concise operative text. Adapted from the best-selling parent title, General Surgical Operations, Essential General Surgical Operations includes a straightforward description of all common major operations, together with a brief account of the less common procedures encountered during the early stages of surgical training. The highly-praised features of General Surgical Operations have been retained, including the clear, direct writing and illustrative style, and boxes which emphasise and give advice on how to recognise, avoid and correct difficulties. However, the text has been rewritten where necessary to ensure that the needs of the basic trainee are clearly met, and substantially streamlined so that the key operations are covered in the exact level of detail required.
