One of the most famous books in history is making history all over again!

The 'ultimate truth' in anatomy. Gray's Anatomy is the peerless source of reference on all matters concerning human anatomy. The new 39 th edition has been redesigned, reduced in size and rigorously edited to improve readability, remove duplication and thereby produce one of the most radical revisions in the book's long and distinguished history.

For the first time, Gray's Anatomy has been organised by body region, and edited by a team of clinicians, to ensure maximum relevance to those working in medicine, dentistry and professions allied to medicine. Our goal has been to provide the most reliable and comprehensive human anatomy resource possible, together with 'signposts' to the most current source of molecular and cytological information available elsewhere, on the web or in print.

Now available as an e-dition!


Unparalleled description of human structure serving as the ultimate resource on human anatomy.

Spectacular artwork programme including almost 700 entirely new illustrations; permitting the reader to learn and memorise 3-D relationships of anatomical structures and apply this knowledge to their surgical, dental or physiotherapy practice.

Editorial board comprising mainly clinicians, not basic scientists, ensures applicability to surgeons, radiologists, etc.

Regional organisation ensures all anatomical content relevant to say, an operation on the shoulder, is contained in one place and not scattered between body-system sections.

Fewer pages for a crisper, more accessible book.

What's New

Specialist revision of topics such as the anatomy of the pelvic floor, the inner ear, the organisation of the peritoneum, preimplantation embryology, assisted fertilization, spread of infection via fascial planes in the head and neck, smooth and cardiac muscle, wrist kinematics and kinetics, the temporomandibular joint.

Extensive use of new imaging modalities, e.g. the anatomy of the pelvic floor.

Revision of the entire neuroanatomy section.

Introduction of descriptions of the blood supply to the skin and muscles, on the grounds that they have surgical relevance when raising flaps for reconstructive surgery.

Standardization of views in diagrams and photographs, so that wherever possible, the body is seen from the left side, irrespective of whether a lateral or medial view is presented, and transverse sections are viewed from below.

Updating photomicrographs to ensure that as many as possible are of human material.

Selecting clinicopathological examples where the pathology is either a direct result of, or a consequence of the (biomechanical) anatomy, or where the anatomical features are instrumental in the diagnosis/treatment/management of the condition.
