Reconstructive Surgery: Anatomy, Technique, and Clinical Application 1st edition
In Reconstructive Surgery: Anatomy, Technique, and Clinical Application 1st edition, Drs. Zenn and Jones pay full deference to Mathes and Nahai’s original contribution to the field while adding their own considerable expertise to this topic. The authors are assisted by a select group of internationally recognized contributors who provide expert commentary on clinical cases. Together, these leading surgeons share their vast experience and insights on techniques for reconstructing all anatomic regions. This two-volume set features superb medical illustrations that depict important flap anatomy as well as the step-by-step surgical technique for each of the operations described.
In preparing something as monumental as this two-volume book, Michael Zenn and author had to work together for hours as a team. It has been a privilege to know Michael as a colleague and a friend, and this book has been a catalyst in strengthening an enduring friendship and mutual respect. We both love to teach, and we hope that the pages of this book will help generations of plastic surgeons to come. Works such as this do not come to fruition without considerable sacrifice.
We are both busy clinical surgeons with mature practices, and time is always at a premium. In embarking
upon such a project, we were acutely aware that the time commitment would be enormous. That time is garnered at night and on weekends, and it comes at the expense of time with our wives and families. I want to pay tribute to my wife, Hilarie, for her enduring support and encouragement during this second tour de force in my writing career, for without it, the project would never have matured. It is hope and prayer that this ebook will be an invaluable tool in plastic surgical training, not only as a resource for surgeons, but above all, for the benefit of our patients, without whom the need for this book would never exist
