Over the prior ten years, carbon dioxide laser surgical procedure has made extraordinary strides and is now utilized to each box of surgical procedure with out exception. it's the purpose of this ebook to list the paintings performed during this box within the division of Plastic and Maxillofacial surgical procedure of the Beilinson scientific middle and Tel Aviv college clinical college, Israel, in addition to that played in organization with different go away­ ments. during this context, one feels that it truly is incumbent upon one to recognize the cooperation of the clinical and paramedical employees of the dept of Plastic and Maxillofacial surgical procedure of the Beilinson scientific middle, in addition to that of Prof. Yehuda Shindel and Dr. Daniel Katenelson of the dept of Ear, nostril and Throat, Dr. Y ona Tadir of the dept of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Dr. Itamar Kott of the dep. of basic surgical procedure. I may still prefer to make particular point out of Dr. Ralph Ger of latest York, who labored with me at the unique medical trials, and the engineer Uzi Sharon, who constructed the Sharplan Laser with me. The development of Laser surgical procedure is easily tested by way of the participation within the 4 conferences of the overseas Society for Laser surgical procedure, the 1st of which was once held in Tel Aviv in 1975 with an attendance of sixty five and the final in Tokyo in 1981 with an attendance of 1200.
