SUMMARY

Manual of Ambulatory General Surgery provides a step-by-step guide to the most commonly performed minor operations. Most of these operations will be done under a local anaesthetic on a day case basis, although some may require general anaesthetic. The book is profusely illustrated with clear diagrams. Designed to be a practical guide rather than an exhaustive reference, the book is aimed at those who are required to carry out these procedures such as general surgeons, junior doctors, general practitioners and podiatrists. It will also be of interest to medical students
