Plastic surgeons are problem solvers for complex issues involving the skin as well as muscle, bone, nerves, and blood vessels over the entire body. The breadth and depth of knowledge required for the practice of plastic surgery is tremendous, and every plastic surgeon must develop a logical and efficient method for assessing clinical problems and developing sound solutions. In Decision Making in Plastic Surgery, editors Jeffrey Marsh and Chad Perlyn provide a comprehensive set of diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms for virtually all of the medical and surgical issues encountered by plastic surgeons.
