Plastic Neurosurgery: Opening and Closing Neurosurgical Doors in Adults and Children
By Ken Rose Winston, Lawrence L. Ketch
This is the definitive text for the intersection of neurosurgery and plastic surgery, a crucial and undertreated subject. It is a comprehensive, stand-alone and topically organized book that provides a synthesis of information, experience and wisdom for practitioners of adult and pediatric neurosurgery, including all subspecialties.The first of the three parts of the book includes foundational information on normal and abnormal anatomy, wound healing and surgical details for the management of skin, fascia, muscle, bone and dura, important subjects which receive little attention in neurosurgical literature. The second part of the book consists of descriptions of the plastic components – i.e., the opening and closing for neurosurgical approaches. Neurosurgical approaches are presented in three groups: intracranial, spinal and exposure of peripheral nerves. The plastic neurosurgical concerns for each approach are emphasized, and each chapter includes citations of relevant sources. The third part of the book presents the plastic neurosurgery of cranial and craniofacial disorders and the role of neurosurgeons in these surgeries, which are often performed with plastic surgeons. All neurosurgeons, particularly in the formative years of their residencies and fellowships, should learn and never forget not only the what and how but also the why of the plastic components of neurosurgery. This text fills this important gap in the literature.
Introducing the Comprehensive Text on Neurosurgery and Plastic Surgery
When it comes to neurosurgery, the importance of repairing and reconstructing tissues cannot be overstated. Unfortunately, the intersection of neurosurgery and plastic surgery has been an undertreated subject, leaving a gap in the literature for practitioners of adult and pediatric neurosurgery. But fortunately, Ken Rose Winston and Lawrence L. Ketch have come together to provide a solution – the definitive text on neurosurgery and plastic surgery.
Published by Springer, this comprehensive, stand-alone book provides a synthesis of information, experience, and wisdom for practitioners of all subspecialties of neurosurgery. The book consists of three parts: foundational information on normal and abnormal anatomy, wound healing, and surgical details for the management of skin, fascia, muscle, bone, and dura; descriptions of neurosurgical approaches, including citations of relevant sources; and plastic neurosurgery of cranial and craniofacial disorders.
The first part of the book focuses on foundational information that receives little attention in traditional neurosurgical literature. This includes details on wound healing and surgical management of various tissues. It is essential because successful and efficient reconstruction of tissues remains a crucial aspect of neurosurgery.
The second part of the book focuses on neurosurgical approaches and the plastic components involved in opening and closing of these approaches. This is a critical section for practitioners because it emphasizes the plastic components of neurosurgery, which are usually overlooked in traditional neurosurgical literature.
The third part of the book concentrates on plastic neurosurgery of cranial and craniofacial disorders and the role of neurosurgeons in these surgeries, which are usually performed with plastic surgeons. This is crucial for practitioners who want to understand the importance of collaboration between neurosurgeons and plastic surgeons to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient.
What makes this book stand out is not only its comprehensive coverage of neurosurgery and plastic surgery but also its clarity and concise descriptions of the subjects covered. The authors’ years of experience and expertise in the field are evident in the way they have presented information.
The book is presented in a topically organized layout, which makes it easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. The authors have also included relevant citations for all the approaches presented in the book to help readers review the sources and deepen their understanding.
Published in September 2023, the book has a digital version with 576 pages, ISBN-10: 3031278712, and ISBN-13: 978-3031278716. The book is available on Amazon and other online stores.
Now that I’ve introduced the book, let me share my thoughts on it. After reading this book, I am convinced that it’s a game-changer for the field of neurosurgery. The authors’ meticulous attention to detail makes it a valuable resource for practitioners of all subspecialties of neurosurgery.
One of the things I appreciated about the book is the authors’ expertise in the field, which comes through in their writing. They are clear, concise, and insightful, making the text easy to understand and engaging to read.
Another aspect that I found fascinating about the book is the emphasis on the plastic components of neurosurgery. The authors’ recognition of the significance of reconstructive surgery in neurosurgery is an essential aspect that has received little attention in traditional neurosurgical literature.
The book is well-organized, making it easy to navigate and find relevant information. It’s an excellent resource for neurosurgeons who want to deepen their understanding of neurosurgery and plastic surgery and improve their practice.
It’s clear that the authors of this book have put a lot of effort into providing a high-quality, comprehensive, and valuable resource for practitioners of neurosurgery. I believe that this book will have a significant impact on the field and will become a reference text for practitioners of all subspecialties of neurosurgery.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in neurosurgery or plastic surgery. It’s a comprehensive, well-written, and essential resource that will help improve your practice and deepen your understanding of the field. If you’re a practitioner of neurosurgery or plastic surgery, this is a must-read. Order your copy today and see the difference it can make in your practice.
