Fonseca Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 3rd Edition Volume 1 PDF Free Download
We are excited to present the third edition of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. This three-volume text is the result of the collaboration of multiple contributors. The first edition, published in 2000, and the second edition, published in 2009, were very well-received. However, with all the advances in our profession, we felt it was time for a new edition. The section editors have done an excellent job recruiting the most knowledgeable individuals in their specific areas of expertise. The authors have submitted chapters that reflect the state of the art in their areas of responsibility. This text is a comprehensive resource on oral and maxillofacial surgery. Every area in our specialty has been addressed. It defines the scope of the specialty. Every surgical procedure performed by an oral surgeon is covered in this text. This multi-volume text provides coverage of a wide range of issues related to surgical care, such as anesthesia, diagnostic imaging treatment planning, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and psychological considerations. After an analysis of the changing field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, we strove to present a comprehensive, current book that covers the complete scope of our specialty. We hope that the reader appreciates and agrees with our efforts. We stated in the preface of the first edition that we hoped that our future attempts will present an even broader scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. The fact that this edition has succeeded in that regard is a testament to the individuals who are constantly expanding the envelope. The third edition of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a team approach. The section editors—Michael P. Powers, David E. Frost, and Bach Le—were invaluable contributors to the success of this effort. They diligently pestered authors so that deadlines were almost met. This edition, like the last two, attempts to define the scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery and could not have come to fruition without these contributors. Residents are the lifeblood of our specialty. Many have helped to contribute portions of chapters in this book. They have also provided us with friendship, dedication, intellectual stimulation, and humility, without which this book would not have been written. Last, I would like to thank all the staff who helped to prepare these manuscripts and the editorial staff at Elsevier, who were so patient with our procrastination and meticulous in their development and editing of this book. Additionally, I would like to thank my staff—Laynee Adams, Sally Brown, Heather Early, Patty Martin, Sarah Merrill, Josie Ray, and Ashley Wood—who collectively and individually make my life so enjoyable.
