‘Essential Clinical Surgery’ by Dr Stanley Mathew

'Essential Clinical Surgery' by Dr Stanley Mathew

Essential Clinical Surgery is a contemporary resource for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students. The second edition of this book is aimed at providing students with an understanding of the basic tenets of clinical surgery and at retaining and building on the following objectives of the first edition:

  1. To describe the art of eliciting history and physical signs without ambiguity
  2. To present up-to-date clinical material relevant to the practice of clinical surgery in India
  3. To use appropriate clinical photographs and an algorithmic approach to corroborate and augment the textual description.

Essential Clinical Surgery is aimed at filling a void that exists in the currently available clinical resources which either lack clarity in describing clinical signs, allude to diseases that are only of historical importance or describe obsolete investigations.

Essential Clinical Surgery is meant to help bridge this gap between the inadequate spectrum of clinical material available to students and the dearth of teachers who can provide quality clinical instruction.
