Bailey & Love’s Short Practice of Surgery 27th Edition

Norman Williams, P Ronan O’Connell, Andrew McCaskie

When Hamilton Bailey and McNeil Love published the first edition of their venerated textbook in 1932 the surgical world was a very different place to that of today. There were no antibiotics, no joint replacement, no open- heart surgery, no transplantation and many other procedures that we now take for granted had simply not been invented. Medicine and surgery never stand still. Surgeons continually strive to innovate so that they can tackle conditions and diseases previously thought to be beyond reach. They do this against a background of new discoveries in both the physical and biological sciences. Such breakthroughs make some surgical procedures redundant, but others stimulate new approaches. This is seen in all specialties and consequently it is important for textbooks not only to keep pace with new developments but also to ensure that a balanced view is taken of their place in the therapeutic armamentarium. In developing the 27th edition of this much-loved textbook, we have striven to keep this in the forefront of our minds and those of our contributors. Nevertheless, in addition to considering the place of innovation, it is important not to ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’. We have therefore ensured that the basic tenets of surgical practice that have stood the test of time remain where appropriate.
