Description

Henry Pickerall was a 20th-century plastic surgeon also from New Zealand. Although not as well known as the other “fathers” of plastic surgery, such as Gillies, McIndoe and Kilner, Pickerall did advance the specialty of facial reconstructive surgery. He was, in fact, the first maxillofacial surgeon in New Zealand. Like Gillies’s, this book was meant to discuss and detail the diagnosis, care, and surgical management of the face. He drew upon his vast experience treating those injured during the war.
