Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kumar and Clark are, as ever, on the ball and have provided us medical students with this pocket guide to clinical surgery. All the essentials are covered, in colour, with pictures, enabling the surgical management of any condition to be quickly accessed. And quick access is just what you need to dodge a consultant’s quick-fire question round! I can easily see myself whipping out this portable guide and scurrying into the nearest side-room to reference a condition/ procedure. The highlight for me is the ‘important steps in common operations section’ that fantastically summarises the main steps in a dozen bullet points- what more can I say? Perfect."
Faye Sharpley, Medical Student, Cambridge University
