Item description for Mini Atlas of Ophthalmic Surgery (Anshan Gold Standard Mini Atlas) (Anshan Gold Standard Mini Atlas) (Anshan Gold Standa Mini Atlas) by Sandeep Saxena...


Ophthalmology is a dynamic specialty and one of the most advancing disciplines of medicine. Old concepts change and new ideas are plentiful. Everything is difficult before it becomes easy.

Ophthalmic Surgery provides a comprehensive mini atlas in the form of black and white and colored figures complemented with text and several surgical videos. This atlas attempts to update the state of art in ophthalmic surgery in a lucid, authoritative and well-illustrated manner.

The value of this book lies in the quality and expertise of the text chapters and the surgical video contributors from around the globe. This book is intended for the experienced ophthalmologists, postgraduates as well as those in training. It is hoped that this atlas will be sufficiently comprehensive to aid the ophthalmic surgeon in performing competent surgery. This pragmatic book provides an understanding of surgical techniques so important to the everyday practice of ophthalmology.

Ophthalmic surgery is a continuously advancing field as new technologies are being introduced at a rapid pace. As new instruments are introduced, the ophthalmic surgeon must learn their intricacies as he begins to apply them to treatment of ocular diseases. In turn, the adoption of new technology brings with it the need to learn new skills and develop new treatment algorithms.

No one ophthalmologist can be highly expert in all facets of ophthalmic surgery. In this challenging intellectual environment an atlas bringing together respected authors from multiple subspecialties is welcome. Dr. Sandeep Saxena has gathered a distinguished group of experts to address the current status of eye surgery in a mini atlas. This atlas has an excellent compilation of lucid color figures and surgical videos.

Dr. Saxena along with his fellow authors has produced a book, which is an important contribution to contemporary ophthalmic education, which will be a welcome addition to the library of ophthalmologists around the world.
