This book is designed to provide a background for young surgeons. Rather than dealing with specific surgery, it discusses various personal and technical procedures and skills used by surgeons and also indicates how the same techniques can often be applied to various fields of surgery. This edition which has been expanded and updated includes new sections on stapling and clipping instruments, developments in diathermy, ultrasonic dissection and duct coagulation plus a new chapter on handling infections as well as 65 new illustrations.

Jerry Kirk has an excellent reputation as an accomplished surgical writer and editor. He has an unparalleled editing style which allows for clear, concise and to-the-point communication. Although fairly advanced in years, he continues to take an extremely active role in both the Royal College of Surgeons and at the Royal Free Hospital, where he is an Emeritus Consultant. He is highly thought of throughout the UK, Europe and developing world, where the "Kirkname" carries a significant weight. He is the author of several other Churchill Livingstone titles, including General Surgical Operations, and Clinical Surgery in General.Review:
I can see why this book is in its fifth edition. It is a really good introduction to basic surgical techniques. As well as practical tips, it provides advice on mental attitude and how to handle yourself, which should encourage trainee surgeons to remain calm in stressful situations. This book will be useful to all medical students starting their surgical placements and also to theatre staff, especially those who assist surgeons.
