The publication of Essential Tissue Healing of the Face and Neck is timely and reflects the burgeoning growth of knowledge about tissue healing and how that knowledge may drive novel therapies to achieve the best possible result in normal tissue healing situations as well as in problematic wounds. From the foreword by 3 outstanding and preeminent surgeons to the selection of excellent authors for the chapters, this textbook is rich with theory, practical applications, and promise for the future. Its multidisciplinary authorship lends credence to the philosophy that wound healing, an exceedingly complex and expansive process, is best approached through the combined efforts and knowledge of many medical and surgical disciplines. This textbook clearly makes the most of such an approach.
