Lecture Notes on General Surgery introduces the student to the principles of common surgical operations and systematically covers all clinical problems where surgical intervention is indicated. In this new tenth edition, each chapter has been revised and updated to reflect new developments in investigations, treatment, and basic practical procedures for all major surgical conditions. A new chapter on pre-operative patient management and surgical strategy has also been added to reflect this key component of the junior doctors' role.
This popular and classic text will appeal to all medical students and junior doctors on foundation programmes who want a concise introduction to the fundamental aspects of general surgery and will provide the core knowledge for final exams and the MRCS examination.
'This book has been a firm favourite with medical students since the first edition was published.[it] covers the fundamentals of general surgery, but also encompasses thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, urology, and transplantation.'
The British Journal of Surgery
'It is certainly good value, giving a short but clear overview of all general surgical and urological topics in fifty chapters.'
