General Surgical Operations book cover

General Surgical Operations

General Surgical Operations is a highly-praised and comprehensive textbook of operative surgery. It is a practical manual aimed at the surgeon who is about to carry out an operation, rather than just a description of the principles suitable for an examiner.

This book is aimed primarily at a trainee studying for the UK and Ireland Intercollegiate FRCS and equivalent examinations around the world. It is, however, also intended as a vade mecum for a trained surgeon anywhere, who is about to carry out an infrequently performed procedure, perhaps in emergency conditions. It will therefore serve as a useful reference manual for every surgeon.

This is a ‘What to do’ book. Using it the reader can aspire to gain diagnostic, decision making and operative surgical competence with confidence.
