"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."

British Medical Association, on Fast Facts: Minor Surgery, 2nd edn.

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.  

Operative set-up and equipment; Local anesthesia; Lesion identification and management; Treatment planning; Avoiding complications; Suturing techniques and removal; Surgical procedures; Examinng your practice
