A comprehensive account of all the surgical techniques required in training for postgraduate qualifications in general surgery.
Operative Surgery and Management is already well known to many trainee surgeons as an essential source of information on the more practical aspects of their postgraduate training. This new edition, co-edited by Mr Gerald Keen and Professor J R Farndon, maintains this position and has been planned to accommodate the recent changes in postgraduate surgical education. New features include chapters on laparoscopic techniques and laparoscopic cholecystectomy, more information on surgical endocrinology and a complete update of all chapters and illustrations where appropriate. Operative Surgery and Management is an essential reference source for the postgraduate trainee surgeon and will also provide a comprehensive update for the general surgeon in practice.
