An ever-increasing number of surgical procedures are now being performed in ambulatory settings. Hospital beds are at a premium and resources are becoming scarcer. This atlas guides readers through all the practicalities: it looks at the potential of short-stay surgery, how to set it up and how it may be relevant to all surgical specialities. Specialists well- known in their sphere discuss and illustrate operations that can be performed without a stay in hospital. The topics covered will become more and more relevant as time goes by, and those who read this book will be able to stay well ahead of the game. It is designed to help surgeons plan for the future and discover the vast potential for this form of surgery.

From the reviews:
"This book covers many surgical procedures that can be performed on a short stay basis, either same day surgery or with a 23 hour recovery. ... Practicing clinicians who desire to increase the percentage of their short stay practice are the intended audience. It is also a good book for medical students rotating through their junior clerkships as it encompasses anesthesia principles ... . Junior house officers will also benefit ... . This is a good companion for senior medical students, residents, and practicing surgeons." (Susan Skaff Hagen, Doody's Review Service, May, 2008)
