Mike Henry and Jeremy Thompson are both Consultant Surgeons at the Chelsea and Westminster and the Royal Marsden Hospitals. Being in the heart of centralLondon, their time is often spent treating the complaints of the famous (andno doubt sometimes the infamous), which if nothing else keeps life interesting and enlightening!

Mike did his first training in London, Jeremy in Cambridge. Both have held Senior Lecturer posts at major universities in the UK, and have travelled abroad frequently in connection with researchand other projects. Mike's research interests include functional disorders of the large bowel and Jeremy's include adhesion formation and prevention. Both editors are members of the Surgical Research Society. Mike is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, was awarded the Patey Prize of the Surgical Research Society in 1971 and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. Jeremy is a Fellow of the Association of Surgeons and a member of the British Society of Gastroenterology.

Outside 'office hours', in addition to compiling this textbook, both editors try to find time for their families and friends, the occasional work-out, skiing holidays, and wining and dining! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book explains surgery from pre- operative care/ethics, signs and symptoms, theatre, post-op complications- basically all you need to know for surgical finals. It is a good source of information for those learning surgery for the first time and those learning it for the very last time. It even includes medical images for those that need reinforcement. I recommend it to medical undergraduates all over the UK.

Finally, the Kumar and Clark of surgery has arrived! This brand new textbook really does tell you everything you'll need to know about surgery as a medical student, and probably as a house officer as well.
The book is split into three sections:
Section 1 covers general issues like wound healing, pain control and surgical complications. There are also some really good chapters on basic practical procedures and emergencies.
The 2nd section takes a regional approach, covering just about every bit of the body you could take a knife to.
The 3rd section covers surgical complications, including ophthalmology, ENT and orthopaedics, which are not usually found in general surgical texts (so there's ££ to be saved!).
Each chapter starts with an overview of the relevant anatomy, physiology and investigations. There are loads of really good pictures, with summary boxes and tables all over the place to make the info easier to digest. The book is colour-coded throughout, and whilst there's quite a lot to take in, it's really readable and well presented, so it's not too daunting. I'd say it's less gory than quite a lot of surgical textbooks I've seen (whether that's a plus or minus is up to you!).
The only downside to the book is that there are none of those handy self-assessment questions for the night before that dreaded exam. The book may also be a bit too exhaustive for the average medical student, with a few random sections like 'how to design a surgical department' (but you can just skip over these).
Overall however, this is an excellent textbook, and I'm pretty sure that 'Henry & Thompson' will become for surgery what 'Kumar & Clark' has for medicine. They look quite nice next to each other on your bookshelf as well!

Good book for medical student's doing surgical rotations and enough details to give you an idea once you start working too.
