This book is written in a simple, easy-to-understand manner... I would like to recommend this book for hand surgeons who want to perform surgery more simply and easily. -- Archives of Plastic Surgery

In short order, I went from skeptic to convert... The nearly 160 videos, narrated by Dr Lalonde, are a treat....Dr Lalonde's argument for using WALANT anesthesia in hand surgery is compelling. Furthermore, I am convinced that this method represents a paradigm shift in the administration of anesthesia for our patients. -- Journal of Hand Surgery

Wide awake hand surgery (WALANT) represents a breakthrough in surgery of the hand and upper extremity. It can be performed with no preoperative testing, no intravenous insertion, and no monitoring. Like a dental procedure, the patient simply gets up and goes home after the procedure.

Presented in an easy-to-read, bullet-point format, Wide Awake Hand Surgery guides surgeons through all aspects of WALANT. The book covers a wide variety of topics including minimal pain injection of local anesthesia, nerve and tendon decompression, wrist surgery, repair of lacerated tendons, tendon transfers, finger fractures, lacerated nerves, metacarpal fractures, arthritis surgery and complex reconstructions in hand surgery.

The book includes more than 150 step-by-step surgical and instructional videos as well as numerous color clinical photographs. Color drawings clearly guide the surgeon to the correct anatomic locations for anesthetic injections, and the book includes an atlas of tumescent local anesthesia distribution anatomy. Featuring a complimentary eBook, this valuable resource offers chapters written by worldwide experts, making it the definitive guide to wide awake hand surgery.
