Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery celebrates 10 years of publication

November 17, 2008

The November/December 2009 issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, one of the JAMA/Archives journals, celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the journal's publication and features a special series of articles on the art and science of the specialty.

The field is a dynamic one, notes journal editor Wayne F. Larrabee Jr., M.D., Seattle, in an introductory editorial. "On the research frontier, advances in wound healing, laser technology, biomaterials and other areas will transform facial plastic surgery in ways we can only imagine," he writes. "Surgical techniques will advance in an exciting--but more predictable--manner and result in better, safer outcomes for our patients. The articles in this issue speak strongly about the present and future of both facial plastic surgery and the Archives."

Other topics covered in the issue include: "In the next decade, we must preserve the passion for medicine that defines our specialty," Dr. Larrabee concludes. "Our dedicated researchers and clinicians will surely develop new science and technology to improve quality and safety for our patients. The editorial board and staff of the Archives look forward to publishing this research in new and imaginative ways for decades to come."
