A complete guide to the surgical techniques used to treat childhood skin conditions.
Recent advances have expanded the role of pediatric dermatologic surgery in both specialist and primary care settings. However, such surgeries can pose unique challenges to trainees and experienced practitioners alike. Procedures are carried out under local anesthesia and can be a source of distress and concern among young patients. Moreover, child’s skin poses its own set of complicating factors, making the business of performing these procedures especially delicate and precise.
This book provides a step-by-step primer on invasive and non-invasive treatments of childhood skin disorders, offering concise and clearly illustrated guidance on current methods and best practices. Addressing conditions’ effects, the impact of recent developments in their treatment, the ethics of operative procedures on children, and multiple treatment options for childhood dermatologic disease, Pediatric Dermatologic Surgery is an indispensable resource for trainee dermatologists and pediatricians, as well as practicing specialists.
