Principles of Surgery

Sam Andrews


This invaluable companion cuts across the boundaries of traditional surgical practice: from podiatrist to neurosurgeon, from student nurse to professor, it answers the fundamental questions on surgical practice for students, nurses, operating department assistants, dentists, anesthetist and surgeons of all specialties.
Readable, affordable and portable, this cutting edge guide comprises three sections.

– Aspects of pre-operative care
– The operating theatre environment
– Postoperative care and complications

Each section is formulated to cover all aspects of surgical practice, to provide a concise text for rapid review and memorisation. It is useful for medical, dental and surgical student students revising for examinations, or for teachers who want to have a guide, or just anyone who wants to work in theatre and needs to plug gaps in their knowledge.
