Toward Interspecialty Cooperation

Toward Interspecialty Cooperation Abstract A day at the race track can be an enjoyable experience, but differences of opinion that generate disparaging and insulting remarks concerning professional colleagues and that lead to the waste of precious resources of time and treasury are an embarrassment to the profession of medicine. As Sir Harold Gillies, MD, and D. Ralph Millard, Jr, MD, said: The great ignominy to the plastic surgeon is his inability to remove a scar without leaving another one... the best we can do is occasionally improve on another surgeon's scar while indeed he may be improving on several of ours.1 The scars of today are an unpleasant legacy of the past, and the hour is late for us to devote our efforts to the three tasks of interspecialty accident prevention, trauma management, and scar revision. In the past, there has been a great deal of interspecialty conflict among surgeons from various specialties References 1. Gillies H, Millard DR Jr: The Principles and Art of Plastic Surgery .

Abstract

Abstract A day at the race track can be an enjoyable experience, but differences of opinion that generate disparaging and insulting remarks concerning professional colleagues and that lead to the waste of precious resources of time and treasury are an embarrassment to the profession of medicine. As Sir Harold Gillies, MD, and D. Ralph Millard, Jr, MD, said: The great ignominy to the plastic surgeon is his inability to remove a scar without leaving another one... the best we can do is occasionally improve on another surgeon's scar while indeed he may be improving on several of ours.1 The scars of today are an unpleasant legacy of the past, and the hour is late for us to devote our efforts to the three tasks of interspecialty accident prevention, trauma management, and scar revision. In the past, there has been a great deal of interspecialty conflict among surgeons from various specialties References 1. Gillies H, Millard DR Jr: The Principles and Art of Plastic Surgery .
