Surgery is a core element of the clinical practice of gynaecology. Bonney's Gynaecological Surgery has been a firm favourite for gynaecological surgical practice since 1911. Specifically tailored for trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology, the text focuses on the most commonly performed procedures. The 12th edition will include a colour photo section. With greater emphasis on fundamental clinical skills and major updates on laparoscopic and robotic surgery, this classic text will be brought right up to date for the current trainee or junior consultant physician. Each chapter follows a consistent plan, guiding the reader through each procedure from anatomy and indications to post-op considerations and complications. The text is also accompanied by surgical illustrations of unparalleled quality, ensuring that this volume will remain a valuable resource for all clinicians specializing in gynaecological surgery.
