We are pleased to announce that the third edition Surgery of the Breast…., edited by Scott Spear, M.D., Chief of Plastic Surgery at Georgetown University, has just been published. This is viewed by many in the plastic surgery field as the definitive textbook on breast surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive. Dr. Strock wrote the chapter “Transaxillary Breast Augmentation” (breast implant placement using a short incision in the armpit) in the section of the textbook that focused on Cosmetic Breast Surgery. Additionally, Dr. Strock wrote the chapter on “Two-Stage Tissue Expander with Implant Breast Reconstruction” (the most popular method of immediate breast reconstruction in the United States) following mastectomy for breast cancer, in the section of the textbook that focused on Breast Reconstruction. Dr. Strock is a leading educator in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery and appreciates the opportunity to work with Dr. Spear on this project.
