Reviews

-An excellent addition to our surgical literature, filling a void that has been present: too long...The real value of this book is its ability to convey fundamental surgical concepts and techniques in a simple, clear, and efficient way...It does so in a multimedia style at a cost that's hard to beat.--Archives of Dermatology
