Introducing the book that bridges the gap between a dermatologic surgery textbook and a dedicated flap and reconstructive guide

Dermatologic Surgery is a unique resource that offers the benefits of both a single-volume multi-author global dermatologic surgery textbook and a dedicated flap and reconstructive reference. Conveniently organized by flap type as well as regional approach, it offers by far the most comprehensive flap and reconstruction sections of any general dermatologic surgery book.

The book’s content breakdown attempts to reflect the proportion of time, effort, and training required for a given subject. For example, there are five full chapters (in addition to numerous other sections) dedicated to Mohs surgery. Similarly, a total of 17 richly illustrated chapters, including those devoted to particular flap techniques and regional approaches to reconstruction, address flap and graft closures. Since anatomy is the foundation on which all surgery is built, the anatomy chapter was built on a true ground-up cadaveric study of head and neck anatomy with an eye to clinical relevance.

Full-length high-quality videos are an essential adjunct to learning procedural techniques, and this text includes the largest video resource of its kind ever compiled. This coupled with almost 3,000 high-quality clinical photographs and nearly 500 professional medical illustrations, including infographics with surgical pearls for each chapter – many bolstered by beginner tips, expert tips, cautions, patient education points, and even billing tips – make this a true primer for real-world skin surgery practice.

It is universally acknowledged that endometriosis is a confusing, enigmatic, and mysterious disease, but this need not be so. Confusion is an opportunity for change if this confusion is recognized for what it is: lack of accurate information.

Epiduroscopy : Atlas of Procedures

 Surgery  Comments Off on Epiduroscopy : Atlas of Procedures
Jun 112018
 

Due to advances in spinal endoscopy, practitioners are now able to offer efficacious alternatives to open surgery to patients with low back pain, radiculopathy, and related disorders affecting the epidural space. Epiduroscopy enables surgeons to access, diagnose, and treat discogenic pain and spinal pathologies using minimally invasive techniques via direct visualization and focused intervention. Typically performed as a one-day outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, epiduroscopy provides a viable option to many patients suffering from low back pain.

Starting with the history of this procedure, the authors guide the reader systematically through relevant clinical indications, radiological anatomy, the pathophysiology of spinal pain, diagnostic modalities, and the use of specialized tools. Subsequent chapters detail specific conditions and approaches, histopathologic/microbiological findings, and patient assessment and outcomes.

Key Features

– Clinical pearls gleaned from years of hands-on experience, including preventing and managing complications.
– Online access to 46 step-by-step surgical videos and animations provides in-depth understanding of techniques.
– Nearly 600 high quality images, including procedural photos and medical illustrations delineate approaches.
– The use of epiduroscopy-assisted mechanical adhesiolysis, laser procedures, radiofrequency, analgesic and pharmacological therapy, ozone therapy, spinal cord stimulation, and more.

This is an essential resource for trainee and practicing physicians in the fields of neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, pain medicine, and interventional medicine.

This book provides a broad overview on training in Minimal Access Surgery, with expert opinions from leaders in the field clarifying the definitions and terminology related to competence and accreditation. It also provides expert advice on how to set up a training unit and explores the role and impact of all types of simulations on training including virtual reality simulation. How to design a competency-based training curriculum in advanced laparoscopic surgery is also explored along with in depth examination of the role of assessment and competency based accreditation. Training in Minimal Access Surgery is a valuable resource for all health care professionals who are involved in training and education in Minimal Access Surgery including trainers and supervisors.
​There is well established and robust evidence to support the benefits of laparoscopic surgery in terms of better pain control, fewer complications and shorter length of stay with an earlier return to work. Hence, there is now widespread adoption of laparoscopic techniques in many surgical specialties including colorectal and morbid obesity surgery across the world.

This informative volume synthesizes the literatures on health economics, risk management, and health services into a concise guide to the financial and social basics of health insurance with an eye to its wide-scale upgrade. Its scope takes in concepts of health capital, strengths and limitations of insurance models, the effectiveness of coverage and services, and the roles of healthcare providers and government agencies in the equation.
