Testimonial by a UC Davis Plastic Surgery Resident: Dr. Nirav Patel

NiravPatel“As a UC Davis Plastic Surgery resident, we often learn about new aesthetic and reconstructive procedures and the best ways to learn are with visual resources. Standard anatomy atlases and surgical textbooks are useful, but in the end do not provide that application to the OR short of direct, one-on-one instruction from a board-certified surgeon. The Journal of Medical Insight fills a void in our compendium of resources.”
