General Surgery Training A unique blend
of integrated video and book content,
How to Operate provides a comprehensive
, multimedia training resource for medical
students, junior doctors, MICS candidates
and surgeons in training.

The three DVDs present over 40 of the
most common general, urological, NET
and orthopedic surgical procedures,
complete with step-by-step commentary
from experienced surgical consultants. At
key points during each procedure, the frame
freezes so that anatomical structures and
pathology are ‘drawn’ onto the frame for
clarity and to reinforce learning.

The 10 hours of video is supported by an
accompanying book containing an introduction
to each procedure, a thorough explanation of the
operation mirroring the video with relevant video
stills, and bullet point summaries which can be
used as ONCE-style checklists.

With a foreword by John Black, President
of the Royal College of Surgeons, How to
Operate is a truly comprehensive learning
resource for all budding surgeons. All you
need to become a surgeon is here –
