Trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology require robust operative skills, yet factors such as the implementation of structured training and increased litigation concerns have significantly limited training time. Whilst conventional textbooks are sufficient for presenting theoretical knowledge, they are inadequate in explaining practical procedures. How to Perform Operative Procedures in Obstetrics and Gynaecology thoroughly describes many key index operations in the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists training syllabus, offering an innovative, media-rich approach to the subject.
Written by a team of O&G practitioners, this unique resource combines concise written instructions, full-colour pictures and diagrams, and hours of high-quality video footage of real-life operations, narrated by experienced NHS consultants. Specialty trainees, MRCOG candidates and post-MRCOG doctors are provided clear, easy-to-follow guidance on procedures including assisted vaginal delivery, Caesarean section, abdominal hysterectomy, diagnostic and operative laparoscopy, cone biopsy, rigid cystoscopy and many others.
