Surgery of the Skin: Procedural Dermatology 2nd edition (Expert Consult Series) with DVD

The first edition of Surgery of the Skin: Procedural Dermatology became known as the "Hand Book" because of the cover image of the editor's hands. We are delighted that the text became the handbook of procedural dermatology. It is our hope that the second edition will be regarded by our readers as their preferred concise ready reference, thus, earning the sobriquet of handbook. The book cover of each edition is created especially for that edition; therefore, we needed to retire the image of the editor's hands. We thought it fitting to continue the theme of the first edition with images of our author's hands performing procedures in this the second edition. The still photograph cannot capture the ephemeral movement of the surgeon's hand as well as video. Our film crew, Drs Bhatia and Rohrer, provide the surgeon's eye view for many of the new videos. Now the viewer can see the same area that the surgeon did when performing the surgery. This is about as close to hands on training as the reader can get. The DVD of the video material has a printed table of contents showing the huge breadth of procedures demonstrated in the videos.
Dermatologic Surgery has significantly evolved over the last five years and each of the chapters has been expanded to reflect this. In order to limit the size of the book to a single volume that can be lifted and carried with ease, the editors carefully selected portions of each chapter to be offered online as a part of the website called “Expert Consult.” This can be accessed via a PIN code printed in each book under a scratch-off panel. The edited online content provides additional examples of surgical cases with variations on the material presented in the textbook. Dermatologic surgeons frequently make choices between a variety of treatment options, e.g. medical vs. surgical treatment, chemical peeling vs. laser resurfacing, or flap vs. graft reconstruction. There are even some regional and generational differences in the execution of commonly performed techniques. This may be due in part to the large role mentoring plays in dermatologic residencies and fellowships. Selecting among the variety of treatment options and their execution is part of the art of procedural dermatology. Each of our authors is an accomplished artist and we are indebted to them.
