For practicing laser surgeons, Controversies & Conversations in Cutaneous Laser Surgery bridges the wide gulf between day-to-day practice and textbooks or formal journal articles. This book delivers exactly what its title states, a series of concise and easy-to-read summaries of the most important clinical issues faced by anyone who uses lasers on the skin. The work is multi-authored and distilled from a highly interactive international laser symposium headlined by the leading laser gurus from around the world. As in the symposium, there is a no-holds-barred approach to the chapters and discussion summaries where all authors are rigorously challenged to defend their views and specific techniques. In fact, the very best parts of the book are the transcribed interactions between the experts, all of which are sprinkled with clinical tips that are not otherwise found in print. This book definitely captures the spirit and essence of the controversies.
