Unofficial Guide to Surgery: Core Operations Summary

Unofficial Guide to Surgery: Core Operations: Indications, Pre-op Care, Procedural Details, Post-op Care, and Follow Up by Katrina Mason, BSc (Hons) MBChB MRCS (ENT) (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist Registrar, St George's Hospital, London, UK)

The field of surgery has enchanted students for as long as it has existed, and today's medical students are no exception. Despite surgery being vital to our healthcare system, very few students are exposed to surgical teaching at a level of detail approaching that of their instruction in medicine or critical care. This textbook seeks to excise the mystery around the operating theatre and to equip students with a thorough understanding of the principles of common operations. The Unofficial Guide to Surgery: Core Operations is a practical guide to common surgical operations, and it would be a useful resource for any medical or nursing student undertaking a rotation in surgery. Whether you're a surgeon-to-be at the cutting edge of your cohort and hoping to wow your senior colleagues, or a budding psychiatrist unexcited about standing in theatre for hours on end, this textbook has something for you. It is detailed enough to serve as a study resource for the Christina Yangs of tomorrow, but organised and concise so that even the least surgically inclined student can feel more prepared for their obligatory stint in theatre after reading through an operation report while changing into their scrubs. The textbook features an introduction to the principles of surgery, followed by detailed operation reports for an extensive array of common procedures, organised in chapters based on speciality. Helpfully, each operation report includes the definition of the procedure being performed, its indications, high-quality illustrations of relevant anatomy, a step-by-step guide to the procedure at a level appropriate for students and junior doctors, and interesting trivia on the operation or associated condition. Students will be prepared for a niche question from even the most esoteric consultant!

Unofficial Guide to Surgery: Core Operations Reviews

Let's get it straight. I enjoyed reading this book. Any medical student or surgical trainee will benefit from reading the relevant chapter before an attachment to one of these surgical specialties. While this book is aimed at those directly involved with surgical patients, it would do no harm if those involved less directly, in primary care and hospital services that support surgery, could find the time to understand the basics of surgical interventions and appreciate the complexity of even the most straightforward of procedures.; Professor Derek Alderson MD FRCS. President. Royal College of Surgeons of England; This wonderful new book will be enormously useful to all undergraduates in Surgery. It has been produced in collaboration with students which has ensured that their need to demystify surgical procedures has been at the heart of the development.; Miss Philippa Tostevin; Reader in Surgical Education and Head of the Centre of Clinical Education, St. George's University of London.; Whether you're a surgeon-to-be at the cutting edge of your cohort and hoping to wow your senior colleagues, or a budding psychiatrist unexcited about standing in theatre for hours on end, this textbook has something for you.; Imogen Thomson. Final Year Medical Student; University of Sydney; This book provides an excellent summarisation of common surgical procedures, the indications, complications and anatomy that you need to know! Never be lost in theatre again!;Laura Arthur. General Surgeon. Glasgow, Scotland; Each operation report includes the definition of the procedure being performed, its indications, high-quality illustrations of relevant anatomy, a step-by-step guide to the procedure at a level appropriate for students and junior doctors, and interesting trivia on the operation or associated condition. Students will be prepared for a niche question from even the most esoteric consultant!; Stella Harris. Final Year Medical Student. University of Sydney
