Ideal for the non-specialist, this book describes techniques for minor, less-invasive skin surgery. It covers basic techniques, including shave and punch biopsy, elliptical excision, cryosurgery, and electrosurgery. The diagnosis of benign, premalignant, and malignant lesions is also discussed, as is equipment, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, and homeostasis. Additional chapters cover referrals, wound care, and complications.

* Focuses on office-based procedures that are appropriate for primary care physicians. * Authored by dermatologic surgeons and family practitioners to provide the proper perspective on what can be performed safely and efficiently by the non-specialist. * Includes referral guidelines to provide criteria and rationales so primary care physicians know when to treat and when to refer. * Gives step-by-step instructions illustrated by full-color photographs.
