An easy to follow step-by-step guide to the most useful surgical skills from knot tying to simple procedures. Illustrated with colour photographs and video clips to demonstrate techniques, this book makes these practical skills as clear and easy to follow as possible.

Including coverage of surgical instruments, wound management and suturing, and minor surgical procedures, it also explains how to use these essential surgical skills to make the most of a surgical placement. Healthcare students or junior professionals undertaking a placement in surgery or emergency medicine will feel confident and capable, and will be able to take an active role in surgical placements. Learning basic surgical skills is important for such placements, as well as for undertaking exams such as the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS).

Expert videos, guided by the author, are included with the book and can be accessed through www.routledge.com/9781032423265.
