Book Description

3 May 2012 1848166141 978-1848166141 3rd Revised edition
This textbook is an introduction and guide to undergraduate surgery. It has been a bestseller since its first edition in 2001. The philosophy of this book is to focus on the level of knowledge and the approach that would be expected of the better students reaching the end of their undergraduate training. Avoiding a book that is too cumbersome, we have tried to make this volume readable and enjoyable, using various techniques to help the reader remember key facts: the text has been deliberately written in a tutorial-like story format as opposed to a set of lists, since this makes it easier to understand and remember. In addition to general surgery, the book contains sections on trauma, orthopaedics, urology and Ent, making it the only comprehensive textbook for medical students wishing to learn top tips in surgery. Subjects that are poorly covered in other main texts - such as fluid balance management and minor surgical procedures - are dealt with in a tutorial fashion in this book, and there is a section on how to problem-solve even in the context of areas unknown to the student. This book is useful for medical students and also for junior doctors during their day-to-day working lives, as well as those coming up to postgraduate exams. Each chapter is written by an authoritative author, alongside the book editors, and they have ensured it remains in the spirit of the bestselling previous editions.

Product Description


"It uses a narrative style of writing, making it enjoyable and easy to read. It refers regularly to subject material that is commonly asked in oral examinations and has a chapter dedicated to exam preparation. At a time of increasing subspecialisation and module based curriculum delivery, chapters on generic topics such as fluids and nutrition, pre- and post-operative management and trauma are welcome." --British Journal of Surgery

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper printed copy! 31 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this edition out of my university library several times before deciding to purchase this one for myself. The copy I received states it was printed by on the back inside cover and is clearly of a much inferior quality than those published by the proper publishers (Imperial College Press). The cover is not as thick and the pages are of a cheaper matt type material. The contents appear to be identical however.

I was a little disappointed to receive this obviously inferior copy but the contents of the book have been useful for my finals revision nonetheless. It would be helpful if Amazon would make it clearer within the items details that this is not an original publishers version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad - Few errors 20 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Contains a number of errors and is out of date in a number of areas.
Having said that, its an adequate brief overview of surgery to guide you revision/learning.
