The book will also help readers develop effective and appropriate treatment programs within the time constraints of a busy clinic. Case Studies for Complementary Therapists provides suggestions for questions to ask at consultation time; helping readers collect the necessary information to develop a working diagnosis and treatment protocol. Complementary medicine ethics and law Complementary practitioners are often uncertain about the legal and ethical boundaries in diagnosis and case management.

The ultimate visual compendium of optimal suturing and wound repair practice, covering 25 must-know techniques Atlas of Suturing Techniques: Approaches to Surgical Wound, Laceration, and Wound Repairpresents the building blocks of suturing and wound repair in an at-a-glance, economical atlas format. In its pages, the author shares his vast expertise and it is his intention to help physicians across many specialties to improve outcomes for patients requiring repair of any wound. Starting with chapters on principles of wound management and wound repair, the atlas then moves on to equipment, positioning, and other key principles. The next section covers 25 suture techniques, providing detailed step-by-step instructions adjacent to drawings and photos of the techniques. Finally, the last section covers each area of anatomy, guiding you in what suture to use when, how to modify certain sutures in specific locations, and even how to prepare and execute skin grafts. Atlas of Suturing Techniques: Approaches to Surgical Wound, Laceration, and Wound Repairgoes beyond the scope of other texts, which often limit their focus to either general operative principles or the specific use of flaps in particular reconstructive areas, such as facial and nasal reconstruction. While these texts provide insufficient coverage of actual suture placement techniques, this one-stop resource excels at providing a clear, easy-to-follow atlas of suturing—one that enables you to prevent scars and other negative patient outcomes. Unfortunately, even the best designed repair can be undone by less-than-optimal suturing techniques. Reviews the fundamental principles of suturing and wound repair in an accessible, affordable Atlas format Covers 25 suture techniques and provides unique, step-by-step instructions with precise drawings and photos of the techniques Includes 80 videos Helpful anatomical orientation in last section specifies what suture to use in a wide range of clinical scenarios
