Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, edited by Maria Siemionow and Marita Eisenmann-Klein, is the latest in a long line of highly valued texts found in the Springer Specialist Surgical Series.
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery brings an up-to-date comprehensive review of the basics of physiology and wound healing, and both standard and new techniques and technologies introduced in recent years to plastic surgery. It provides a fast and comprehensive overview of plastic surgery to help residents and young plastic surgeons to prepare for board exams in one succinct volume of plastic surgery knowledge.
The book is divided into seven major categories. In each category, chapters related to anatomy, physiology and pathology are supplemented with chapters on treatment options including conventional surgical techniques as well as new technical approaches including endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery. The chapters are designed to address questions most often asked on the specialty boards. The book summarizes basic plastic surgery knowledge in the light of innovations and new technologies as well as research approaches as applied to general plastic, hand surgery, peripheral nerve surgery, microsurgery, breast surgery, esthetic surgery, and reconstructive surgery.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, presentation of the basic plastic surgery knowledge encompasses areas worthy not only of attention from plastic surgeons but also hand, microsurgeons, head and neck specialists, and breast surgeons.
