About the book
Thieme Dissector, Second Edition is a richly illustrated and detailed three-volume manual for guiding students and teachers in the dissection lab. It is enriched with intricate illustrations of the human anatomy created from the clinician’s perspective. These illustrations and the carefully researched and structured text elucidate the layer-by-layer dissection of each region of the human body in a stepwise manner.

The volumes have been created by renowned experts in the field: Dr. Vishram Singh, Dr. G. P. Pal, Dr. S. D. Gangane, and Dr. Sanjoy Sanyal. The text of the volumes flows lucidly through well-defined sections in each chapter. These sections have also been made visually distinct to aid access. The authors have aimed to make the reading of these volumes educative, interesting, and visually engaging.

Salient Features of the Second Edition
  • Updated videos: Provides access to more than 100 new videos on Thieme MedOne to facilitate learning, understanding, and comprehension. These videos enhance the scope of understanding the topic under discussion.
  • Dissection screenshots: Most relevant and duly labelled screenshots from the cadaveric dissection videos are presented at suitable places within the text to provide better insight into the steps of dissection.
  • Radiographs: Includes newly added radiographs to help broaden the gamut of interpretation of the anatomy.
  • New section: A new section on “Vertebral Column” has been added to Volume I for extensive coverage of the back region.

  • Best in Content
    The set of three volumes have been put together by the most eminent medical practitioners and celebrated authors in this field. These distinguished authors have meticulously and thoroughly explained anatomical relations and concepts

    in lucid language, with the help of excellent illustrations. The text is divided in easy-to- understand and remember sections. These sections have also been made visually distinct for further ease of readers. The illustrations have detailed labelling and captions.

  • Lifelike Illustrations
    The three volumes include over 600 original, realistic illustrations created by the best medical illustrators. These illustrations help present anatomical information in detail, with unprecedented clarity. They form the perfect companion to the information provided in the text.
  • Dissection Videos
    The three volumes are accompanied by 200 dissection videos that will help students get a near-real experience of being a part of the dissection process.


In the introductory part students are enlightened with the basic principles of how a cadaver on their table is preserved without getting decayed, which is going to be their steppingstone along future in their medical journey.The basic terminology have been briefly and precisely described.The use of color photographs rather than anatomical drawings are life like.The description of dissection procedure has been made simple and easy to understand by highlighting the salient features of the process of dissection and the things to be identified.The columns involving description of muscles,vessels and nerves individually makes this book like the body of textbook thus lessening their burden in their later efforts.Clinical notes at the end of the chapter further enlighten the students in better understanding and analyzing and remembering the subject.Lastly I would like to congratulate the authors and publishers for bringing out such a made easy book which are rare to find.

Osteology part is good, especially the diagrams are fine and easy for the students. Head and Neck is dealt with line diagrams and it is easy for the students to follow. The muscles origin, insertion and action was given in table form, is again easy for the students, students generally not showing the interest in drawing the diagrams now a days. With this approach they will be benefited. Central nervous system is also explained in a nice way with beautiful diagrams, especially cerebellum and cerebrum is explained in detail.Other parts like upper limb and lower limb much details are given explaining the origin insertion of each muscle, their nerve supply and action is explained very nicely. MCQs are added for each chapter is good and ready reference for the students which will help them in their oral examination

Thieme Dissector by Vishram Singh, G.P. Pal, and S.D. Gangane is the best dissector book I have ever seen. Firstly, the images used by Thieme publishers is just mind-blowing, in fact only because of Thieme's wonderful images I purchased the Atlas of Anatomy by Anne M. Gilroy. Secondly, Dr. VishramSingh's explanation is very good and I felt that explanation was coherent, simple and quick. I use this book on my daily basis, in fact this book is in our college's recommend books to buy for first year medical students. Overall it's an amazing book and if you have this book I would also recommend Thieme Atlas of anatomy by Anne M. Gilroy.

Thieme Dissector is a blessing to all the new generation students of medical sciences. Its lucid language, 3D illustrations and simple way of explaining the anatomical concepts negates out the need of any other text book. I wish this endeavor a great success.

Earlier I hated anatomy dissection. Later, I bought Thieme Dissector, it really makes the anatomy dissection easy and language is so simple that one will love to learn it. A student can revise the whole chapter by just reading this book.I strongly recommend all the MBBS students to buy Thieme Dissector.

I would like to congratulate authors of developing a book for Indian medical students. This book is not only meant for undergraduates but also for postgraduate students. This book is a meticulous work which can be easily seen by the diagrams, the step wise dissection methods and the most importantly, clinical anatomy. Most students find difficulty in understanding language of other dissection bookswritten by foreign authors, requiring to be read a number of times before comprehension. For such students, Thieme's dissector presents a very simplified text. The current trend in most pre-clinical medical texts is to present clinical Correlations in separate boxes for emphasis and review. Here, Thieme's dissector makes a strong improvement over existing books by giving clinical notes for a structure just after detailing its dissection. The greatest strength of the dissector is in the integration of the video component which clearly show how to proceed with dissection and how to identify structures in situ. These are currently not present in any other dissector in the Indian market.

Thieme's Dissector shines with its lucid prose, being written by Indian Anatomy teachers. For medical undergraduates with linguistic challenges, the list format aids comprehension. Thieme's Dissector presents a very simplified text, albeit highly detailed, with considerable emphasis on the course of neuro-vasculature in the body and the attachment of fasciae, things which often are crucial to dissection, but are less emphasized in didactic class lectures. The greatest strength of the dissector is in the integration of the video component, tailored for the modern student.

Thieme Dissector is concise, yet essential informationis there along with very appropriate illustrations.These books, I am sure, will be of much benefit to undergraduate and post graduate students of Anatomyas well as teachers.

The most approachable and comprehensible Dissection Manual exclusively tailored for UG that will fill the vacuum in the curriculum. Undoubtedly, a much awaited First choice for 1st year M.B.B.S students.The best book in terms of clarity and 3D representation. Excellent 3D diagrams are supplemented by structured videos for logical conception. This is the USP of Thieme Dissector.
