There are over thirteen million cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures performed in the U.S. each year. There are also hundreds of cases where a patient is disfigured as a result of a non-physician, or a physician not properly trained, performing these procedures. The Castle Connolly Guide, America's Cosmetic Doctors and Dentist, will guide consumers in selecting only qualified physicians and dentists for cosmetic care. The narrative portion of the book will describe the various cosmetic procedures and, most importantly, who is qualified to perform them. Included in the book will be a CD-ROM containing the professional biographies of more than 6,000 physicians and dentists who are qualified by virtue of their training to perform cosmetic procedures. The bios will include medical school residency, training, fellowships, hospital privileges and more. The CD-ROM will provide access to a restricted web-site containing the bios. In addition, for many of the physicians and dentists, the CD-ROM will provide a link to their web-sites where the prospective patient can learn more about the practice of the physician or dentist and can see actual patient results. America's Cosmetic Doctors and Dentists is a consumer guide, not a "who's who," and is researched and published by experienced medical and healthcare professionals. Castle Connolly Guides are designed to help consumers find the best healthcare and are a trusted source of information for thousands of book buyers and web-users each year. The company's founders were the chairman and the president of one of the nation's leading private medical colleges.
