First published over 100 years ago, Logan Turner's Diseases of the Nose, Throat and Ear: Head & Neck Surgery covers the whole of otolaryngology in 70 chapters. This classic textbook has been completely updated and expanded to reflect the increasing sophistication of diagnostic and management skills. All sub-specialities are covered with the content grouped into five major sections:
- Head and Neck
- Paediatric Otorhinolaryngology
Each chapter in this new edition includes key learning points, up-to-date references, and suggestions for further reading. The contributors are leaders in their respective fields - a virtual list of 'who's who' of British otolaryngology head & neck surgery.
The book is essential reading for the practicing otolaryngologist, ENT specialists in training and those undertaking specialty examinations. General practitioners, doctors considering ENT as a career, and medical students will also find the book a valuable resource.
"A very good day-to-day textbook. It covers all subspecialties. It is a welcome addition for students, trainees and consultants in ENT and allied specialties." -(Highly Commended, Surgical Specialities, BMA Medical Book Awards 2016) "...the list of contributors is obviously a who's who of UK otolaryngology..." -The Journal of Laryngology & Otology
