Basic Surgical Skills and Techniques

by Sudhir Kumar Jain, David L Stoker, Raman Tanwar

The aim of this book is to focus on the basic surgical skills and techniques. Apprentices in surgery need a basic set of practical skills in order to care for their patients well. Although many of these skills are same as those used by their 20th century predecessors, today’s trainees need to keep abreast of rapidly changing and advancing technologies that were not available even 10 years ago. 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 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.
