Summary

General Surgical Operations is a highly-praised and comprehensive textbook of operative surgery. It is a practical manual aimed at the surgeon who is about to carry out an operation, rather than just a description of the principles suitable for an examiner. This book is aimed primarily at trainees studying for the UK and Ireland Intercollegiate FRCS and equivalent examinations around the world. It is, however, also intended as a vade mecum for a trained surgeon anywhere, who is about to carry out an infrequently performed procedure, perhaps in emergency conditions. It will therefore serve as a useful reference manual for every surgeon. This is a 'What to do' book. Using it the reader can aspire to gain diagnostic, decision making and operative surgical competence with confidence. The book is written in a clear and direct style and providing explicit instructions using descriptive headings for easy reference. The contents covers standard routine operations in full; non-routine and rarely performed operations are included only where appropriate and in lesser detail The text includes advice on topics such as patient selection; preparation and access to the site of operation; how to accomplish the procedure; closing and aftercare Difficulties are highlighted and advice given on how to respond to unexpected findings Each procedure is fully described thus avoiding repetitions and cutting cross-references to a minimum Regular summaries of key points in the decision making process are included. A new editorial team for the Sixth Edition comprises a colorectal surgeon, a vascular surgeon and an orthopaedic surgeon Professor RM Kirk becomes Editor Emeritus and the Sixth Edition will be known as Kirk's General Surgical Operations The contents are restructured into 42 chapters.
