Surgery is a constantly evolving specialty in medicine – research and technological advances have made surgical procedures safer and more effective and offer shorter recovery times.
Recent Advances in Surgery 38 is the latest volume in the annually-publishing series that reviews current topics in general surgery and its major subspecialties.
Divided into fifteen chapters, this volume covers general surgery, vascular surgery, surgical oncology, breast surgery, hepatobiliary, upper and lower gastrointestinal surgery, and much more. This new book presents new topics such as suture techniques, advances in bariatric surgery, and alternative surgical approaches to biliary duct injury. Recent randomised control trials (RCTs) are also reviewed. Every chapter includes a ‘key points’ summary.
With contributions from recognised experts, the majority from throughout the UK, this new volume covers all the latest developments in surgery, providing excellent revision material for professional examinations, and helping consultant surgeons keep up to date across the specialty.
