Global Surgery Textbook is released

Dr. James Chang, Professor and Chief, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA, has just published Global Reconstructive Surgery.

Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan are contributing authors to this textbook. In their chapter they describe alveolar bone grafting in children with cleft lip and cleft palate. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan are board certified plastic surgeons in the Boston and Cambridge Mass area who also have fellowship training and experience with cleft and craniofacial surgery as well as global surgery. Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common congenital anomalies around the world. In addition to children and adults in the United States who require repair and revision of cleft lip and palate, patients around the world suffer from lack of access to surgical care to repair cleft lip and palate. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan have traveled globally with Partners in Health and Operation Smile to care for children and continue to be actively involved with global surgery teaching and research with Partners in Health and ReSurge. In addition to a broad plastic surgery practice, they also frequently peform secondary revision of cleft lip and palate for children and adults at Mount Auburn Hospital, a Harvard teaching hospital in Cambridge, Mass. Patients from around the region and the world come for care in their office.

With Dr. Chang's new textbook, Elsevier notes that, "As the surgical community steps up to tackle the global burden of surgical disease in developing countries, Global Reconstructive Surgery is the first reference of its kind to offer focused, pertinent coverage of key areas surgeons need to understand to fully participate in this endeavor. It provides authoritative, real-world guidance on common surgeries performed around the world to help optimize outcomes in difficult environments and for a variety of conditions."
