Description

Principles and Practice of Surgery is the surgical companion textbook to the international medical bestseller Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine. It is a comprehensive textbook for both the surgical student and trainee, guiding the reader through key core surgical topics which are encountered throughout an integrated medical curriculum as well as in subsequent clinical practice. Although sharing the same format and style as Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine, this text is complete in itself, thus enabling the student to appreciate both the medical and surgical implications of diseases encountered in surgical wards.

Key Features

  • A three-section textbook of surgical principles and regional clinical surgery.
  • Superbly presented with line drawings, high quality radiographic images and colour photographs.
  • Presented in similar form to its sister textbook Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine.
  • Full online text version as part of Student Consult
