Dermatological surgery is practised routinely in primary care, and most minor procedures are straightforward and require minimal time. Success is dependent on the practitioner's ability to recognize lesions, choose and plan appropriate treatment and surgical interventions, and perform surgical procedures.
Fast Facts: Minor Surgery, second edition provides an overview of the good practice and operative set-up required for dermatological surgery, the skin lesions commonly encountered in primary care and the various techniques and procedures involved in their treatment.
This concise, up-to-date, well-illustrated text represents excellent value for money... it's unique in being able to pack so much relevant information into such a small volume, which makes it highly readable.

Perfect for surgeons or nurse practitioners learning the basic principles of surgery. Will enhance basic surgical skills and keep you out of trouble! Great little book and great value for money.
