In general,dermatology prefers to allow clinicians as much choice as possible to selectamong a variety of treatment options. Thereare regional and generational differencesin the execution of commonlyperformed techniques. This may be partly due to the largerole of mentoring in training dermatologists,who often do it the way thatthe professor showed them during the training years.
Relatively infrequentlyperformed techniques that were not demonstrated and learned during aphysicians training are difficult to incorporate into practice.
In this beautifully illustrated two volume atlas, Dr. Redondo offers a way forboth novices and experienced dermatologic surgeons to learn techniques from amaster. Dr. Redondo is an inventive and exacting surgeon. He has carefullydistilled his years of experience performing dermatologic surgery into thesevolumes that illustrate the best way to perform procedures on the head withspecial attention to the face, trunk and extremities. The pictures provided ineach chapter are a manual of how to perform procedures. Since we all learn toassimilate new information by taking action on the recommendations and casesthat we read, it would be a good idea for physiciansto create a checklist for each procedure in the text. Before starting aprocedure, the checklist can be reviewed and adaptation made in the plan forthe case. Also, the checklist becomes each physicians personal protocol to thesteps in a procedure that helps orient office staff. For infrequently performedprocedures, the physician may review the checklist with theoffice assistant prior to performing the procedure.
Dermatologists have a refined visual memory of cases. When a patient with asimilar problem presents for care, the dermatologists recall reaction willsend him/her scurrying off to find the memorable case in this Atlas. Theclinician friendly distillation of complex matters is noteworthy. A PracticalAtlas to Dermatologic Surgery will help clinicians to conceive and performdermatologic surgery by using this manual of cases. I congratulate Dr. Redondoand the graphic artist, Miguel Angel Flores, for the clarity they bring to the treatment ofskin cancer and recommend this Atlas to all surgeons treating skin cancer.
