New York/Stuttgart –Complete Cleft Care, recently published by Thieme, is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to the assessment and treatment of patients suffering from cleft and velopharyngeal disorders. The book includes videos, available online at Thieme’s Media Center, that demonstrate specific techniques used in each treatment procedure.
“With the supplemental videos adding greatly to its educational value, Complete Cleft Care should be an essential resourcefor surgeons in training. It provides a solid basis to proceed to the more complex original literature with a good understanding of the many options … it provides an excellent review and update for surgeons participating in humanitarian missions … and is also an ideal book for surgeons in emerging countries ... Drs. Goudy and Tollefson and their contributors are to be congratulated on developing what is almost certain to become a classic resource for many professionals around the globe who care for these very important patients.” – from the Foreword by Wayne F. Larrabee, Jr., MD, FACS
This book is an excellent how-to guide that otolaryngologists, facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons, plastic surgeons, oral maxillofacial surgeons, and speech pathologists will read cover-to-cover and refer to whenever they need a refresher on how to tackle a particular cleft or velopharyngeal disorder.
