One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation is a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the ‘tummy-tuck’) are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. This reference will focus on all of the procedures that the anesthesiologist needs to be proficient in to adequately care for this group of patients. Perioperative care and pain management will be covered for the full spectrum of operations, and there will be special emphasis on level-of-consciousness monitoring of these patients.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects millions of people in western society. Since the introduction of laparoscopic techniques in the 1990s, it is now one of the most common indications for surgery.
This multiauthored text provides information on the pathophysiology of GERD, appropriate medical management, and proper indications for and performance of surgical and endoscopic procedures for GERD. Thousands of patients will experience inadequate relief from medical therapy or will develop complications from their procedures or recurrent or new symptoms afterwards; this text describes in detail the proper evaluation and management of such patients.
Beginning with an overview of the current understanding of the pathophysiology of GERD, the book moves onto new information regarding tissue susceptibility, the role of bile and digestive enzymes, and cyclic changes in LES tone. The next chapters are devoted to standard therapeutic options for GERD, including lifestyle changes, pharmacologic therapy, and surgery. In addition, newer endoscopic treatments, such as Stretta, Endocinch, injection of bulking agents, as well as others, are described. Subsequent chapters focus on the causes for failure of medical, endoscopic, and surgical therapies. The remainder of the text is a detailed examination of medical, endoscopic, and surgical remedies for these treatment failures.
This text is essential to any physician who manages patients with GERD, including internists, gastroenterologists, general surgeons, and thoracic surgeons.

Y2K may have been overrated in terms of its immediate disruptive impact on medical and surgical practice, but it also may have coincidentally marked an era of unprece dented change, especially in the domain of surgical spe cialty education. Whether one chooses to identify this with training in the beginning of the third year ofmedical school or the completion of the 7th or 8th year of super specialty training, many of the same issues and concerns apply. The transition from a scientifically oriented stu dent to a real doctor is fraught with hazard and consumes hundreds of hours. The transition into becoming a real doctor is fueled, in many respects, by what most patients expect their doctors to be. This marvelous, concise book is aimed precisely at helping you smoothly bridge the gap between student and practitioner. We have witnessed a decline in surgical career choices, but now a reversal of that decline is occurring with a renewed growth of interest in careers in all surgical specialties. Studies on workforce, or old-fashioned man power as it were, continue to show that there is a growing demand for surgical specialty services in America. Depending on where you live, it may be highly specialty oriented or nearer to “old-fashioned” general surgery.
