Published In: United Kingdom, 01 February 2013
Bailey & Love's Short Practice of Surgery remains one of the world's pre-eminent medical textbooks, beloved by generations of surgeons, with lifetime sales in excess of one million copies. Now in its 26th edition, the book's traditional strengths are combined with the latest updates in effective clinical examination and soundly based surgical principles, while taking account throughout of the latest developments in surgical practice. The eminent editorial team comprises three editors with experience gained over previous editions, and as a result text features enthusiastically received in the previous edition have been retained but developed where appropriate in light of reader feedback and the input of the editors. The content retains the sub-division into Parts to ensure a logical sequence and grouping of related chapters throughout. The new edition opens with sections devoted to the underlying principles of surgical practice, investigation and diagnosis, and pre-operative care. These are followed by chapters covering all aspects of surgical trauma. The remainder of the book considers each of the surgical specialties in turn, from elective orthopaedics through skin, head and neck, breast and endocrine, cardiothoracic and vascular, to abdominal and genitourinary. Bailey and Love has a wide appeal to all those studying surgery, from undergraduate medical students to those in preparation for their postgraduate surgical examinations. In addition, its high standing and reputation for unambiguous advice also make it the first point of reference for many practising surgeons.

Reviews

"This is superb value and a great revision for us all." Liam Flood, Journal of Laryngology and Otology, 2008"This is unique among books of its size. It is a worthy successor to Hamilton Bailey's original, and it remains true to the spirit of that text. It has been brought completely up to date with this most recent edition. 4 Stars!" Carol EH Scott-Conner, University of Iowa Hospitals, Doody Publishing"This is the sort of book that inspires people to study medicine ... I would heartily recommend this book to any medical student, and it is essential and fascinating reading for students aiming for a career in surgery."Ann-Louise Lowson, GKT Gazette"beautifully illustrated with clear and descriptive colour photographs of a very high quality ... This book remains a useful reference for final-year surgical students and for first and second-year surgical trainees who are looking for a broad view of surgery prior to sitting membership examinations. There is no doubt that Bailey and Love provides exceptional background information for all of surgery in general. For these reasons, the book remains at the very forefront of surgical texts and I have no doubt that the 25th edition of Bailey and Love will prove as popular as its predecessors."Annals of The Royal College of Surgeons of England
