A Guide for Podiatric Surgical Students and Podiatric Theatre AssistantsBy
- Colin Thomson, PhD, FCPod(S), Lecturer, Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh, and Associate Clinician, The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, UK
This book covers the time from the initial acceptance of a patient as a candidate for podiatric surgery to discharge after surgery. It is written in a way that whilst each section of the book follows the one before, each stands alone. The reader is taken step by step, explaining each problem or anticipated difficulty in the order that they may encounter it. Throughout the book highlighted 'tips' cover some of the pitfalls often encountered by podiatrists during and after surgery.
