Stuttgart/New York, November 2010 – Saving readers time and energy, the Handbook of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, published by Thieme, is a pocket-sized clinical guide with the most complete and timely coverage of the discipline. Otolaryngology–head and neck surgery – a demanding field that focuses on the treatment of ear, nose, and throat conditions – requires clinicians to continually expand the scope of their knowledge and to have relevant information at their finger tips.
"In an effort to enable practitioners in our field to find clinical information in a highly time-efficient manner, we sought to produce a truly useful clinical handbook on otolaryngology–head and neck surgery," explains author Dr. Goldenberg.
This concise reference has condensed the entire specialty into one convenient book by eliminating extraneous information. Each of the handbook's 160 consistently structured chapters succinctly details a different clinical problem, beginning with key features and material on epidemiology followed by coverage of signs, symptoms and possible outcomes. Special features include an extensive index, up-to-date TNM staging data for head and neck cancer, and multiple appendices that let readers rapidly locate information.
In writing the Handbook of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, Drs. Goldenberg and Goldstein have created a reader-friendly handbook that functions as a must-have resource for residents, fellows, beginning practitioners, and all medical professionals who require a solid understanding of otolaryngology-related issues (including family practitioners, radiologists, pediatricians, nurses, etc.).
"I endorse the content and concept of this clinical contribution, and applaud Dr. Goldenberg and Dr. Goldstein for their vision," states Charles W. Cummings, MD, FACS, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.
