The latest edition of Minor Surgery carries on the highly respected tradition of the well known earlier editions in providing a superbly illustrated step-by-step guide to minor surgery. As previously, the book begins by placing minor surgery into context with a description of the setting up, equipping and running of a minor operations facility in a primary health care setting. Methods of anaesthesia follow. The text then goes on to describe over 40 surgical procedures in step-by-step detail, accompanied by colour photographs and line drawings. The authority and clarity of the text owe much to the author's own experience of over 20,000 minor operations.
All sections have been revised, some reflect improved techniques and others take into account the wishes of those doctors who undertake more complex minor surgical procedures. The latter are incorporated into the Advanced Minor Surgery section, which includes the technique of radio-surgery.
A new chapter on the role of the Practice Nurse/Operating Theatre Assistant is included, acknowledging the vital role they play. Another important new chapter features biopsy techniques, allowing for prompt diagnosis of skin cancer.
As a new addition, specialists in their field have been invited to write a chapter giving information on how to improve the results of minor surgery. This Specialist Minor Surgery Section contains contributions from a consultant plastic surgeon, consultant ophthalmologist and dental surgeon.

WINNER OF THE PRIMARY CARE CATEGORY AT THE 2001 BMA MEDICAL BOOK AWARDS!! The most superb minor surgery text I have ever read. The advice within has been put to immediate use, from an aesthetic point of view it was unput-downable. It deserves the highest praise for its attention to detail combined with a common sense approach.'
...extremely user friendly. It is clear, comprehensive and very well illustrated. All of this makes it a valuable reference for general practitioners and surgeons whether they are in training and or a more serious post.
