Clinical Surgery: A Practical Guide is a handbook for all trainees in surgery, providing an invaluable and expert guide to all aspects of clinical surgery that the trainee will encounter during their day-to-day work.

General chapters on clinical examination, pre-operative, peri-operative and post-operative care are accompanied by expert guidance on how to deal with specific surgical problems, such as respiratory failure, wound healing, MRSA infection, tropical surgery and acute ischaemia. Further chapters provide invaluable information on topics including nutrition, anaesthsia, sutures and surgical incisions. The special problems associated with the surgical management of elderly patients are discussed, and the reader is introduced to the principles of surgical oncology and laparoscopic surgery.

With its concise and easy-to read layout, Clinical Surgery: A Practical Guide is written by a team of expert surgeons, some of whom are also examiners for the Royal College of Surgeons. It is an invaluable on-the-job guide for Foundation level doctors on surgical rotation, as well as for those studying for the MRCS, FRCS and equivalent examinations.
