    by CRC Press

    Designed for trainees at all levels, ENT and Head and Neck Procedures: An Operative Guide provides concise, step-by-step instructions to the core otolaryngology, head and neck, and facial plastics procedures that surgeons are likely to encounter in daily practice. Convenient and portable, this guide provides enough information to allow trainees to perform the operations themselves under appropriate supervision.

    Concise surgical steps for each procedure are followed by detailed explanations. Clear diagrams and photographs demonstrate the important stages of each operation. Surgeons’ tips bridge the gap between the theory and what actually works on the operating table. The book also includes an easy reference table of complications that should be discussed with the patient when obtaining consent.

    The authors have used their wealth of experience to write a practical guide that that will give trainees the skills as well as the confidence they will need in the surgical arena.

    "This book succeeds as a short guide to core ENT procedures. Those looking for a 5-minute review of the steps of a surgery will find it useful."
    —John David Cramer, MD, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine for Doody's Review Service

    "This book provides a step-by-step operative guide for over 40 common otorhinolaryngological procedures. One would expect a door stop of a book, however the authors have purposefully kept each section succinct and colourful with an easy to read font. As a result, the book is a refreshing browse with clear illustrations, high quality photographs, and top tips from the experienced authors."
