About this Reference Work

Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery is the medical and surgical specialty addressing disorders of the head and neck in both adult and pediatric populations. The goal of the encyclopedia is to serve as a single and comprehensive source of all the information that is essential for students and practitioners of the specialty.

The vast amount of information included in the encyclopedia is divided into 5 volumes in line with the subspecialties of general otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, pediatric otolaryngology, otology–neurotology, and facial plastics. All volume editors are internationally recognized otolaryngologists with experience in publishing. Each section editor recruited experienced authors from all over the world to contribute on structured topics, and all entries are supported by published references. Thus, all information included in the encyclopedia is from credible sources and has been carefully screened for accuracy.

The strength of the encyclopedia is its online availability and quick search features, which allow rapid retrieval of definitions and more in-depth information. Key words are hyperlinked to provide a gateway to numerous referenced manuscripts, journals, and books.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is the best comprehensive up-to-date volumes from A to Z regarding virtually every aspect of the diagnosis, genetics, and surgical/nonsurgical treatments of Otolaryngology. … ENT doctors, otorhinolaryngology workers, otologists, audiometricians will find this book worth the price for what is provided. It serves both as a reference and atlas for surgeons of the cranial skull base. I recommend it to all interested in the field.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, February, 2015)
