Book Description
Significant changes in surgical training have occurred over the past decade, with the inevitable progress towards specialization in the various surgical specialties. The current edition of Essential Surgical Practice: Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery reflects these latest developments with a new structure that accurately mirrors current surgical training. This new edition excludes surgical specialties that are distinct from general surgery, allowing an increased focus on topics of direct relevance to trainees in higher surgical training.

Over 31 chapters, the book provides detailed information on those specialties of which the general surgeon is required to have a working knowledge, and highlights core information for revision and quick reference. Topics include:
  • Surgical biology and pathology
  • Surgical craft approaches and technologies
  • Perioperative care
  • Cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal pathophysiology
  • Surgical infections
  • Interventional radiology
  • Trauma and head injuries
  • Disorders of the thyroid and adrenal glands
  • Disorders of the stomach, liver, spleen, colon and pancreas
  • Bariatric surgery
This book can be used with confidence by those enrolled in local courses and is also consistent with the scope and level of information required for international postgraduate examinations, such as the Joint Surgical Colleges’ Fellowship Examination. To enhance the book’s utility, the print edition includes complimentary access to a VitalSource ebook online and offline on your PC or Mac, iPhone®/iPod Touch®/ iPad®, Kindle Fire or Android™ device.
