Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Principles and Practice of Surgery (6th edition) is a concise yet comprehensive source of general surgery aimed at the medical student who is seeking more than just the "generic knowledge" required as well as the junior surgical trainee who wants to consolidate their knowledge base. The sound and up-to-date structure of this edition, with each chapter written by an expert in the field, offers a nicely readable, beautifully illustrated reference. What is particularly appealing are the EBM (Evidence Base Medicine) boxes, which provide the reader with the much needed information in a bullet point format to compliment the text. This feature does not interfere with its readability; an almost unavoidable inconvenience that exists in medical literature."

British Journal of Surgery, October 2012
