Head and Neck

Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery: : Expert Consult – Online and Print edited by James I. Cohen, MD, PhD, FACS and Gary L. Clayman, DMD, MD, FACS (Elsevier Saunders) Learning how to do an operation can be a daunting task, whether as a first-year resident preparing the night before a case never previously encountered or as a surgeon in a busy practice faced with incorporating a new technique or technology into his or her surgical repertoire. Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery acknowledges the realities of how this process occurs. 

Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery  by Drs. James I. Cohen and Gary L. Clayman, delivers unparalleled visual guidance and insight to help clinicians master the most important and cutting-edge head and neck procedures. Consistent black-and-white drawings and detailed text lead them through the steps of the standard operations, while commentary from leading experts presents alternative techniques – complete with explanations about the differences, nuances, pearls, and pitfalls of each approach. Both in print and online, Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery captures groundbreaking techniques such as video-assisted thyroid and parathyroid surgeries; transoral laser surgeries; and robotic surgeries.

    Over time, an increased understanding of the logic behind the steps of these surgical procedures and their sequence will be acquired, and this is where most surgical atlases stop. However different surgeons perform the same operations in different ways, and these different techniques can work equally well. Although this can be confusing and disconcerting to early trainees as they work with different attending staff or preceptors, ultimately, being able to reconcile the success of these different approaches requires a firm grasp of the unifying concepts behind any procedure. Helping clinicians reach this level while still supporting the early phases of learning is the goal of Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery.

    According to Cohn and Clayman, with the chapters assembled with their artwork, each chapter was sent to two to four surgeons with known expertise in the subject matter. They were asked to interject commentary into the chapter wherever they thought appropriate, whether to provide emphasis, clarification, or alternate strategics. This commentary is provided in essentially unedited form, interposed in the original author's text, because Cohen and Chapman thought that this would best simulate a ‘virtual conversation’ taking place around an operation, such as one that would occur at a surgical technique meeting session where a panel is asked to discuss a given operation. At the end of many of the chapters, the authors provide summary comments, when applicable, that seek to clarify common themes, reconcile significant conflicts, or emphasize critical issues.

    Through the use of different fonts, color schemes, and paragraph structure, the publisher has preserved the concept of the sequence of the writing process. This allows readers, depending on their knowledge base or time constraints, to read (or reread) the operation at the most appropriate level for their need. It allows a logical sequence of knowledge acquisition, whether it be rudimentary memorization, review of the steps, a more in-depth understanding of the logic of these steps, or an analysis of the guiding principles that underpin the operation as a whole, through the commentary.

    In print or online, this surgical technique reference is a resource for planning and performing successful head and neck surgery or preparing for the head and neck portion of the Otolaryngology boards. Concise yet complete, easily accessible, Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery provides expert, step-by-step guidance on the latest head and neck procedures. Authors break down the operations into their component steps, much as they would direct early learners the first time through the procedures in the operating room. The framework is useful not only for the operations outlined in Atlas of Head and Neck Surgery but also for a lifelong learning process that will allow for the newer techniques and technology that clinicians must confront over the course of our professional lives.
