This book covers the time from the initial acceptance of a patient as a candidate for podiatric surgery to discharge after surgery. It is written in a way that whilst each section of the book follows the one before, each stand alone. Throughout the book highlighted 'tips' are given that cover some of the pitfalls often encountered by podiatrists during and after surgery.
It is written from the assumption that the reader is a surgical student or an assistant with little practice or no practical experience in the operating room or assisting at surgery. The reader is taken step by step, explaining each problem or anticipated difficulty in the order that they may encounter it.
