Which is the latest edition of Bailey and Love?

3 mn read
Update : New 28th edition is expected to arrive this year (2022).
The latest edition of Bailey and Love as of May 2020 is 27th Edition. The publishing date for 27th edition is 16 November 2018. Previous edition release dates are as follows:

  • 26th – 18 Feb 2013
  • 25th – 27 Jun 2008
  • 24th – 26 Mar 2004
  • 23rd – 25 Apr 2000

As per this trend it seems that they publish a new edition of bailey and love every 4-5 years. So I guess there is a long wait for Bailey and Love 28th edition to get published. You could expect the 28th edition of Bailey and Love surgery to come by 2022-2023.

Here is the link to the International Student’s Edition of Bailey and Love – 27th Edition that you can buy at a discounted price in India.
It is considered to be the Best book for surgery for MBBS. The 27th edition is less bulky and excludes some unimportant things (tables, epidemiological facts etc ) and is more colourful and attractive. Language is very easy to understand. If you are a surgery aspirant, this is the best book for surgery. Not at all like other famous bigger books with small font and endless literature which is not actionable and is low yield. But surgery steps are not given for most of surgeries, so you will have to refer to some operative surgery books for surgical steps. As for those facing problems in exam preparation due to difficulty in recalling after reading Bailey, my advice would be to make your own bullet notes as you read the chapters.
Here is a Youtube video with the interview by the authors of Bailey and Love with their comments and updates about Bailey and Love 27th Edition.
