The previous edition won first Prize (Surgery category) at the BMA Awards 2005. The judges' comment:
'A comprehensive and attractively presented 4-colour textbook of surgery aimed primarily at medical students but also of use to junior doctors and surgical technicians. The book has two key features: firstly, it provides students with coverage of every aspect of surgery; secondly, it has been designed and written to be the 'surgical companion' to Kumar&Clark's Clinical Medicine. This new edition will also offer an online version to all purchasers of the book - the first surgical textbook in the UK to make an electronic version available.'
- A comprehensive account of surgery - students only need to buy one text
- Covers general issues such as wound healing and pain control in the first section. By grouping these issues into one section at the beginning, students are immediately given an overview of what makes surgery different
- A regional approach is adopted for the largest section - section 2 - this reflects the way in which surgeons talk about surgery to each other
- The third section covers surgical specialities - paediatrics, endocrinology, urology - and also includes specialities such as ophthalmology, ENT and orthopaedics. These are often omitted from competing books to save space
- The logical arrangement of the three sections makes the book easy to use and refer to in clinical practice
- The arrangement of contents is straightforward and easily understood
- Text boxes are used throughout to highlight and isolate important information
- Includes over 350 four-colour images and line drawings original to this book and greatly praised by students
- Also includes over 100 black and white and approximately 50 full-colour clinical photographs, X-rays and scans
- Designed to complement Kumar and Clark's highly successful Clinical Medicine textbook so that students can have 'matching' texts in these complementary areas
