A collection of approximately 60 chapters each devoted to the anatomy of one of the common general surgical operations. Divided into seven sections: Abdominal operations. General surgical operations in the thorax. Head and neck operations. Surgical oncological procedures. Arterial and venous surgery. General surgical neurological operations. Surgery of the skin.

general surgical operations. It is clearly written and the majority
of the diagrams are excellent. Being written by surgeons it
accentuates the important aspects of applied anatomy, giving sound
I would recommend it to those studying for the intercollegiate speciality examination in general surgery. More experienced surgeons will also find it useful as a source of reference that clearly demonstrates the practical application of anatomy to the art of surgery.
