about this item

Sharing in the development of this new technique with colleagues around the world, Dr. Lalonde presents the first how-to book on wide awake hand surgery (WALANT). He states that any hand surgeon can acquire the skills necessary to perform most operations in hand surgery with the wide awake approach in very little time and discomfort. Accompanying the brief bullet-style text are more than 150 short instructional video clips. Forty-three chapters are divided into four parts: atlas of tumescent local anesthesia with forearm, wrist, hand, and finger injections; general principles of wide awake hand surgery; specific details of how to perform wide awake hand surgery for common operations; complex reconstructions. There are references and illustrations. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
