Surgery, The Ultimate Placebo: A Surgeon Cuts through the Evidence

 Surgery  Comments Off on Surgery, The Ultimate Placebo: A Surgeon Cuts through the Evidence

For many complaints and conditions, the benefits from surgery are lower, and the risks higher, than you or your surgeon think. In this book you will see how commonly performed operations can be found to be useless or even harmful when properly evaluated. That these claims come from an experienced, practicing orthopedic surgeon who performs many of these operations himself, makes the unsettling argument particularly compelling. Of course no surgeon is recommending invasive surgery in bad faith, but Ian Harris argues that the evidence for the success for many common operations, including knee arthroscopies, back fusion or cardiac stenting, become current accepted practice without full examination of the evidence.

Atlas of Adrenal Surgery

 Surgery  Comments Off on Atlas of Adrenal Surgery
Apr 102019
 

This atlas is designed to present a comprehensive and state-of the-art approach to single surgical procedure – adrenal glands surgery.
The idea of this surgical atlas is to bring expertise of adrenal surgery to all surgeons performing, or learning how to perform successful adrenalectomy procedure, and to illustrate different techniques of adrenalectomy that are performed by different renown surgeons. The atlas illustrates several different approaches to adrenalectomy, which include more commonly used anterior lateral adrenalectomy and more advanced newer techniques of posterior retroperitoneoscopic and robotic adrenalectomies. This atlas emphasizes different approaches and ways to perform the same procedure. Specifically how the same procedure could be successfully completed by different surgeons with specific details of each technique. Each approach is presented by three different expert-surgeons illustrating three different techniques of procedure, including single-site approach. Different surgeons have different “tricks” on how to perform this type of procedure successfully. Each chapter presents procedures that are performed and illustrated by a different single surgeon. All authors are members of American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES) and are experts in this specific technique. This atlas includes 18 chapters and illustrates traditional open approach, anterior lateral right and left adrenalectomy approaches, and more advanced state-of the-art posterior retroperitoneoscopic right and left adrenalectomies (including single port procedure) and robotic adrenalectomies. The text includes extensive illustrations and links to video of all procedures making this an interactive text.

Atlas of Adrenal Surgery represents the first single source to provide information on technique and outcomes for a diversity of endocrine surgeons, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeons, surgical oncologists, urologists and general surgeons.

Schein’s Common Sense: Prevention and Management of Surgical Complications: for Surgeons, Residents, Lawyers, and Even Those

 Surgery  Comments Off on Schein’s Common Sense: Prevention and Management of Surgical Complications: for Surgeons, Residents, Lawyers, and Even Those
Mar 272019
 

The enthusiastic feedback received from readers of the international best-seller “Schein’s Common Sense Emergency Abdominal Surgery” inspired the editors to do a similar book dedicated to surgical complications: practical, non-formal, internationally relevant (in all types of practice and levels of hospitals) – and definitely not politically correct: what is considered taboo by others is not taboo for us; here we discuss everything! As in the editors previous book, the use of references is restricted to the absolute minimum, and citing figures and percentages is avoided as much as possible. The chapters in this book are the opinion of experts – each contributor has a vast personal knowledge and clinical experience in the field he is writing about. This book will help all surgeons (and their patients), avoid the misery of complications, and will provide advice on the management of those that are unavoidable. Complications and death are an integral component of surgery. Surgeons have to look death in the eyes, try to prevent it and vanquish it – this is what this book is all about.

 Surgery  Comments Off on Innovative Implantation Technique: Bag-in-the-Lens Cataract Surgery
Mar 232019
 

This book provides a complete overview of the bag-in-the-lens implantation technique written by the pioneering force herself. The technique first developed for the adults and later for paediatrics has had overwhelmingly positive outcomes in reduction of posterior capsular opacification and stability. Nowadays, it is used as a primary approach in all patients with cataract. The initial version of the bag-in-the-lens implant is a monofocal spherical hydrophilic intraocular lens comprised of a 5mm bi-convex optic with two elliptical plane haptics. Bag-in-the-Lens Cataract Surgery guides through the steps required to achieve successful implantation in a concise and highly illustrated format to portray how to effectively perform this surgery. The toric version was launched in 2009 and the diffractive version is on its way.

New and experienced ophthalmic surgeons will find this guide to be an indispensable resource for utilizing this technique to successfully treat adult and paediatric cataract patients in their daily clinical practice.

 Surgery  Comments Off on Joint Denervation: An Atlas of Surgical Techniques
Mar 172019
 


This book serves as an anatomic atlas of the nerves that innervate the joints of the human body in a format that also provides technical insight into pathways that both interventional pain management and surgical subspecialists can use to denervate those painful joints when traditional approaches to manage the pain are no longer successful. This book avails the knowledge of how denervation can relieve joint pain available to the many groups of physicians who care for this problem. Each chapter is devoted to a joint and reviews the neural anatomy as it relates to the clinical examination of the patient. Chapters are user friendly and provide details on the indicated nerve blocks and the clinical results of partial joint denervation. Clinical case studies also serve as a helpful guide in each chapter. Extensive intra-operative clinical photographs and photographs from new prosections provide examples to guide those physicians providing care to the patients with joint pain.

Joint Denervation: Anatomic Atlas of Surgical Technique should be of interest to surgical subspecialists from Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Podiatric Foot & Ankle Surgery, and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. It may also interest those physicians trained in Anesthesia, Radiology, and Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine for their evaluation and treatment protocols using hydrodissection, cryoablation and pulsed radiofrequency approaches to pain.
