History of plastic surgery II

I was grilled on the history of plastic surgery in theatre last week. There was certainly room for improvement!

Online resources for the history of plastic surgery are a bit patchy. I have placed the ones I have found in the links section.

The Carl Ferdinand van Graefe Institute for the History of Plastic Surgery is slowly adding more information to the pages for various key figures in the history of plastic surgery.

"A History of Plastic Surgery" by Paolo Santoni-Rugiu and Philip J. Sykes published in 2007 by Springer had good reviews. It is a substantial text.
