The Primary Surgery Wiki is a project to convert hard-copy surgical skills manuals into an online collaborative resource. Once all the content has been put online, it will be updated by surgeons and other medical professionals, to create an up-to-date and relevant resource for doctors working under limited conditions in third world countries.
Primary Surgery was an original three part textbook first published by Maurice King, together with numerous experts in 1990. The work comprises the volumes Non-Trauma, Trauma and Anaesthesia and was created to supply doctors with basic surgical knowledge to cope with all surgical symptoms far away from referral centers. Primary Surgery has become an essential guide for doctors working in third world countries for over 15 years. The original textbook contains clear step-by-step descriptions and illustrations demonstrating examination and treating procedures.
