The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction at The Plastic Surgery Center is proud to announce the publication of Rehabilitative Surgery: A Comprehensive Text for an Emerging Field, edited by Andrew I. Elkwood, MD, FACS and Matthew Kaufman, MD, FACS, both of whom have authored a number of the book’s chapters, as well.
This text introduces readers to rehabilitative surgery, a field that combines state-of-the-art surgeries from multiple specialties in order to treat paralyzed or severely neurologically impaired patients. This approach reimagines the understanding, coordination, and provision of treatment to chronically impaired patients, offering the opportunity to profoundly change their functional status.
This textbook is the first in the emerging field of rehabilitative medicine that approaches the subject from a multidisciplinary perspective, integrating orthopedic, plastic, neuro, general, and otolaryngological surgery.
Rehabilitative Surgery: A Comprehensive Text for an Emerging Field, published by Springer International Publishing AG, includes 27 chapters by over 50 experts, including many of the other surgeons from The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction.
“We have created this volume based on our nearly two decades of unique experience in the field of treating patients from around the country and all over the world with the unique approach of rehabilitative surgery. We believe these creative solutions can revolutionize care in an underserved population.”
-Dr. Andrew I. Elkwood
