Essential General Surgical Operations


7 New & Used Starting at $21.70


ESSENTIAL GENERAL SURGICAL OPERATIONS has been specifically produced to meet the needs of the basic surgical resident who is looking for an operative text. Adapted from the best-selling parent title, GENERAL SURGICAL OPERATIONS, ESSENTIAL GENERAL SURGICAL OPERATIONS clearly covers all the surgical operations that surgical residents need to be familiar with to pass the MRCS exam. The highly-praised features of GENERAL SURGICAL OPERATIONS have been retained, including the clear, direct writing and illustrative style, and the boxes that emphasize and give advice on how to recognize, avoid, and correct difficulties. However, the text has been rewritten where necessary to ensure that the needs of the surgical resident are clearly met, and it has been substantially streamlined so that the key operations are covered in the exact level of detail required.
• Feature: Mirrors exactly the MRCS list of surgical procedures. Benefit: Covers the standard basic-trainee level list of operations with which all trainees should be familiar
• Feature: Clear writing style for ease of reading. Benefit: Conveys key information clearly
• Feature: Recognition and avoidance of difficulties emphasized in handy "difficulties" boxes. Benefit: Clearly flags up potential problems to the reader.
