Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook and Oxford Specialist Handbook series are available together in this great value pack. This bestselling Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery has been thoroughly revised for the new edition to include brand new chapters on Paediatric Orthopaedics and Common Surgical Procedures, as well as new presentations, illustrations, and new anatomy and emergency indexes to aid quick reference. It is an invaluable tool for junior surgical trainees, medical students, nursing, paramedical, and rehabilitation staff. The handbook covers the assessment and preparation of the patient, anaesthesia and critical care, inflammation, wound healing and infection, and the key components of general surgical practice, as well as chapters on other surgical specialties, including plastic, paediatric, and orthopaedic surgery. There are step-by-step descriptions of common operative surgical techniques, practical hints and procedures, and information on signs, symptoms and rarities. Emergency presentations are clearly identified for rapid reference and investigations and management plans are set out in a clear and easy-to-follow way.
Surgically relevant anatomy and physiology has been expanded for each area, quick reference symbols ensure the reader is guided to key facts, and there is an increased focus on evidence-based practice with key references throughout. A cut above the rest, this is the essential guide to clinical surgery and the surgical specialities. This completely revised specialist handbook in Operative Surgery provides concise and clear information on how to perform operations in the main surgical specialties. It provides an overview of modern operative surgical practice and gives indications for surgery providing details of operative techniques to supplement hands-on experience. It will enable the inexperienced surgeon to prepare adequately for observing, assisting at and ultimately performing a wide variety of surgical operations. It is up to date and reflects current operative surgery. It complements the highly successful Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery.

Review quote

Review from previous edition Review from previous edition In short it's a little surgical gem. Glasgow University Medical Journal [It] perfectly summarises surgery in all its glory... a concise and appropriate text for students and doctors alike... the 'Practical Hints and Procedures' is pure genius... I highly recommend this handbook for anyone embarking on a surgical rotation. GKT Surgical Society Website June 2003 This book... is destined to enter the hearts, mind and pockets of medical students, housemen, junior surgical trainees and a myriad of other healthcare professionals... forms part of the essential kit for anyone who employs the art and science of surgery to improve the quality of life of their patients. GKT Surgical Society Website June 2003 It goes the extra mile to provide enough up-to-date information to satisfy even the most hair-splitting consultant. I found it an indespensable assistant on the wards. Priya Sastry A must for all foundation year doctors and SHOs in surgery ...This book has an excellent layout Dr Amjad Choudry The third edition...represents an excellent consensus of specialists and surgical registrars attuned to what is happening and what is new. Occupational Medicine ...succeeds as an efficient study companion...perfect for last-minute cramming. ICSM Gazette ...provides a succinct surgical guide for junior residents and medical students...the book is a needed addition to the surgical literature. Doody's Notes I found it friendly and easy to find any source of information in a systematic order. I would recommend it for junior doctors and final year medical students. BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended
