Gynaecological surgery invades the patient′s essence. This places great demands on the surgeon to learn and use skillful, sensitive techniques with the aim of minimizing patient discomfort. Victor Bonney pioneered the art of gentle gynaecological surgery over a century ago. But still today, with the use of laparoscopy and other minimal access procedures, sensitivity to the patient′s predicament remain paramount requirements of the gynaecological surgeon.
The 11th edition of Bonney′s Gynaecological Surgery maintains the emphasis on sound technique and the development of good surgical habits. It brings these principles into the 21st Century by including new diagrams to demonstrate the use of modern instruments and procedures. Laparoscopic techniques complement traditional open approaches. The 11th edition has been reorganized to cover:
- General approaches to gynaecological surgery
- Anatomical consideration of gynaecological surgery
- Gynaecological oncology
- Operations on other organs
Bonney′s Gynaecological Surgery remains unsurpassed in its commitment to the patient as the focus of surgical practice. All the editors subscribe to the tenet of keep it simple and keep it safe′. Tens of thousands of gynaecologial surgeons throughout the world have benefitted from Bonney s sage advice. Why not join them?
