Essential Surgery is a comprehensive and highly illustrated textbook suitable for both clinical medical students as well junior surgical trainees, preparing for postgraduate qualifications in surgery such as the MRCS. Covering general surgery, trauma, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, paediatric surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and urology, it incorporates appropriate levels of basic science throughout. The book is ideal for modern clinical courses as well as being a practical manual for readers at more advanced levels. Its main aim is to stimulate the reader to a greater enjoyment and understanding of the practice of surgery.


Awarded First Prize British Medical Association Book Awards 2008 "This is the best undergraduate surgical textbook I have seen for a long time. It may contain less detail than some of the classic texts but it is well-balanced for the current medical course. This is a book to be read and studied rather than a synopsis or aide m?moire to surgery to be carried in the pocket. There is of course a market for both but I would see this as being the more useful especially as the purchase price includes web access to the book. This is the book I will now be recommending to my students!" "The Fourth edition has been revised extensively. There is an excellent new chapter on screening...The book is divided into four major sections, the largest of which describes the symptoms, diagnosis and management of surgical problems in a traditional disease-based approach. The individual chapters are consistently well written and superbly illustrated." British Journal of Surgery 2009; 95; 535
