Principles and Practice of Surgery 6th Edition PDF

Principles and Practice of Surgery is the surgical companion textbook to the international medical bestseller Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine. It is a comprehensive textbook for both the surgical student and trainee, guiding the reader through key core surgical topics which are encountered throughout an integrated medical curriculum as well as in subsequent clinical practice. Although sharing the same format and style as Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine, this text is complete in itself, thus enabling the student to appreciate both the medical and surgical implications of diseases encountered in surgical wards.

Preface – Principles and Practice of Surgery

The sixth edition of Principles and Practice of Surgery continues to build on the success and popularity of previous editions and its companion volume Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine . Many medical schools now deliver undergraduate curricula which focus principally on ensuring generic knowledge and skills, but the continuing success of Principles and Practice of Surgery over the last 25 years indicates that there remains a need for a textbook which is relevant to current surgical practice.

We believe that this text provides a ready source of information for the medical student, for the recently qualified doctor on the surgical ward and for the surgical trainee who requires an up-to-date overview of the management approach to surgical pathology. This book should guide the student and trainee through the key core surgical topics which will be encountered within an integrated undergraduate curriculum, in the early years of surgical training and in subsequent clinical practice.We have striven to improve the format of the text and layout of information. Considerable effort has also been put into improving the quality of the radiographs and illustrations.

It is our intention that this edition is relevant to doctors and surgeons practicing in other parts of the world. The four editors welcome the contributions of Professors VenkatramaniSitaram and Pawanindra Lal whose remit as co-editors on our associated International Edition is to ensure the book’s content is fit for purpose in those parts of the world where disease patterns and management approaches may differ.We remain indebted to the founders of this book,Professors Sir Patrick Forrest, Sir David Carter and Mr Ian Macleod who established the reputation of the textbook with students and doctors around the world. We are grateful to Laurence Hunter of Elsevier for his encouragement and enthusiasm and to Ailsa Laing for keeping our contributors and the editorial team in line during all stages of publication.We very much hope that this edition continues the tradition and high standards set by our predecessors and that the revised content and presentation of the sixth edition satisfies the needs of tomorrow’s doctors.
