Grabb, M.D., and details the origins and growth of plastic and reconstructive surgery and the training of residents in Ann Arbor and at the University of Michigan from 1946-1986. The book covers the years before and during the period of explosive innovations within the areas of cleft lip and palate, microvascular surgery, musculo-cutaneous flaps, tissue expansion, breast reconstruction and cranial-facial surgery that have led the specialty to provide hope, correction, and rehabilitation to vast numbers of people suffering from a wide range of congenital abnormalities and acquired deformities.
