Product description


This book simply smacks of class; I have had the privilege of reviewing the hardback edition which is a robust and physically heavy book.  This is a powerful heavyweight textbook that seems to cover most surgical specialties and is suitable for a global audience. Even better, its appeal is widespread throughout various sectors of the medical and surgical community. If you are a practicing physician and just need one surgical textbook as a reference source for your personal or departmental library, this excellent book could fit the bill. It is also very useful for the undergraduate or postgraduate medic no matter where you are in the world. So it is very adaptable to a number of end users.
Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia, May 2018, Full review: http://www.glycosmedia.com/bailey-and-loves-short-practice-of-surgery-2/

This is a high-quality book on an international level that provides significant additional illustrations and discussion of problems encountered. It is thus a highly valuable resource for students, residents, and surgeons who will be practicing outside the U.S. (or doing surgical volunteerism). There is nothing comparable to the Bailey textbooks. This 27th edition nicely updates and enhances information from the 26th edition, while remaining true to the purpose of the original.
