Practical Plastic Surgery for Nonsurgeons
The primary purpose of this book is to provide information to rural health care providers with limited or no access to specialists. It is designed to offer detailed information about medical issues whose treatment can be helped with reconstructive surgical expertise. Additionally, explanations as to when and why it may be prudent to transfer care to a specialist are also offered. In this way knowledge can be transferred to help improve the quality of life of patients in rural areas or without access to reconstructive surgeons.
