This book presents the subject from a practical aspect that most other books miss out. It takes a patient centric view of how to approach a given clinical situation, the variables involved in the process of decision making, evidence on controversial issues and options of management in each case. Some of the areas covered are tendon rehabilitation protocols, stepwise marking for a cleft lip repair and for BBR as well as principles that guide decision making in facial palsy, breast cancer reconstruction and brachial plexus injuries. There are specific sections that provide clinically oriented information on Moh's micrographic surgery, medical lasers and the principles of fracture fixation in hand surgery. Every chapter has a selection of hand picked literature references that will further distil the topic for the reader. Acknowledging that sometimes there is more than one correct course of action, this book separates fact from the author's opinion.
