Editorial Reviews


“Surgical texts are notoriously difficult to get your head around; this book is pitched at the perfect level for undergraduate medical students. An excellent study aid, brilliant revision aid, and all-round must have for your clinical education and general interest in the subject.” Medical Student, Leicester

“I would strongly recommend this book for any medical students with an interest in surgery and MRCS candidates. It’s clear, logical format makes it a joy to read either cover to cover or to dip in and out of as needed.” Medical Student, Keele

“This is the best core text available for undergraduate study of surgery. If you only buy one textbook, it should be this one- it will be a welcome companion in preparation for many surgical exams in addition to the routine work of the surgical placement.” Medical Student, Oxford

“This is the only book you need for surgery as a medical student. Reading it cover to cover gives you a good overview of the topics in surgery, whilst still offering enough detail to impress even the most demanding consultant. I love this book.” Medical Student, St. Georges

"This is probably the best surgical text, both as a revision aid and general reading - perfect for undergraduate topics." The Placebo Effect, HYMS Gazette

From the Back Cover

Lecture Notes on General Surgery introduces the student to the principles of common surgical operations and systematically covers all clinical problems where surgical intervention is indicated. In this new eleventh edition, each chapter has been revised and updated to reflect new developments in investigations, treatment, and basic practical procedures for all major surgical conditions. A new chapter on pre-operative patient management has been added to reflect this key component of the junior doctors' role, and new material covers other current issues such as management of MRSA, breast cancer screening and treatment in the NHS and a full update on transplantation.

This popular and classic text will appeal to all medical students and junior doctors on foundation programmes who want a concise introduction to the fundamental aspects of general surgery and will provide the core knowledge for final exams and the MRCS examination.

Review Quotes:

'This book has been a firm favourite with medical students since the first edition was published.[it] covers the fundamentals of general surgery, but also encompasses thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, urology, and transplantation.'
The British Journal of Surgery

'It is certainly good value, giving a short but clear overview of all general surgical and urological topics in fifty chapters.'
Barts, Queen Mary and Westfield College

Format: Paperback
A great book for clinical medical students. Concise, clear and very readable. Helps in those few weeks before surgical finals.
Highly recommended to anyone who wants to know about everything there is to know for finals. I could never have survived without it.

I took this book after my consultant asked me to , and i have no regrets as this book touches everything you need in general surgery and serves a easy revision for exams when you cant go thru' big texts.
