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.

User’s Review:

Wide awake hand surgery makes sense on so many levels from the perspective of society, hospitals, surgeons, and of course patients. This book is hopefully the first of many on the topic. This book is written with simple instructions and includes great diagrams and videos. It is available at no extra cost to read on my smart phone and laptop. I believe that this is the most important book to own for any hand surgeon.

This a book about how to perform band surgeries under local anesthesia, it is very well writtened and easy to unserstand, you’ll be able to watch a lot of videos with technical details and hints. I strongly recommend this lecture for all hand/orthopedics surgeons.
