Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is the first of its kind to blend evidence-based and procedural disciplines. . Evidence-Based Procedural Dermatology provides detailed evidence for the clinician who may be wondering about a procedure that could be selected for a specific condition. The references are detailed and well edited, as are other sections of the chapters. The book is . a source of procedures used in dermatologic practice. The usefulness of such book increase the more one refers to it." (Lawrence Charles Parish, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 308 (5), August, 2012)"This fascinating textbook focuses on the broad field of dermatologic surgery from tumors to reconstruction to cosmetic procedures in a unique way. It is nicely laid out, with good graphics, and is concisely edited. . This is a wonderfully different type of textbook that should be on the desk of every dermatologic surgeon interested in making sound decisions based on real evidence." (William P. Coleman III, Dermatologic Surgery, Vol. 38 (9), September, 2012)
