Overview

Bailey & Love's Short Practice of Surgery remains one of the world's pre-eminent medical textbooks, beloved by generations of surgeons, with lifetime sales in excess of one million copies.

Now in its 25th edition, the content has been thoroughly revised and updated while retaining its traditional strengths. Under the stewardship of the eminent editorial team, comprising two editors with experience gained over previous editions and a third editor new to this edition, and in response to reader feedback, the content has been sub-divided into parts to ensure a logical sequence and grouping of related chapters throughout while the text features enthusiastically received in the last edition have been retained. The new edition opens with sections devoted to the underlying principles of surgical practice, investigation and diagnosis, and pre-operative care. These are followed by chapters covering all aspects of surgical trauma. The remainder of the book considers each of the surgical specialties in turn, from elective orthopaedics through skin, head and neck, breast and endocrine, cardiothoracic and vascular, to abdominal and genitourinary.

Key features:
Authoritative: emphasises the importance of effective clinical examination and soundly based surgical principles, while taking into account the latest developments in surgical practice.
Updated: incorporates new chapters on a wide variety of topics including metabolic response to injury, shock and blood transfusion, and surgery in the tropics.
Easy to navigate: related chapters brought together into clearly differentiated sections for the first time.
Readable: preserves the clear, direct writing style, uncluttered by technical jargon, that has proved so popular in previous editions.
User-friendly: numerous photographs and explanatory line diagrams, learning objectives, summary boxes, biographical footnotes, memorable anecdotes and full-colour presentation supplement and enhance the text throughout.

Bailey and Love has a wide appeal to all those studying surgery, from undergraduate medical students to those in preparation for their postgraduate surgical examinations. In addition, its high standing and reputation for unambiguous advice also make it the first point of reference for many practising surgeons. The changes that have been introduced to the 25th edition will only serve to strengthen support for the text among all these groups.
