There are times when surgeons are confronted with emergency cases and action is required. There are also times when operations must be carried out in remote places with little or no access to sophisticated technological aids. In cases like these, 'Hamilton Bailey's Emergency Surgery' has become the best-known source of information and advice in its field. Each chapter is written by a contributor with expertise in that particular subject and the whole text is profusely illustrated throughout. The result is a definitive source for the surgeon 'on the spot'.
