Basic Surgical Skills and Techniques

by Sudhir Kumar Jain, David L Stoker

This book aims to facilitate the more rapid learning required in a modern surgical program, with concise chapters on the main techniques that need to be mastered in the early years of training. It is intended to be read mainly by senior medical students, and housemen or interns, but may also be a useful revision for those about to take their first surgical postgraduate examinations. It is the book written by working general surgeons to enhance the practical training of their own teams. It is also an international collaboration between London and New Delhi, and will be of use to students studying the art and science of surgery everywhere. It is not an exhaustive reference book, but more of a brief guide, to be used as a learning tool mainly in operating theaters and emergency rooms. It contains simple lists and diagrams with no superfluous text. There are clear explanations which should aid the student from scrubbing up to suturing up. This book is designed to enhance practical training, and the student is encouraged to spend as much time as possible putting the basic skills described to good use in a clinical environment. Surgery remains largely an apprenticeship specialty, where only lots of practice will make perfect.
