Alumnus Writes Surgical Atlas
Posted on Monday, April 06, 2009
When it comes to facial rejuvenation surgeries, Hobart alum William H. Truswell Jr. '68, P'01 wrote the book, quite literally. Recently, Truswell compiled a textbook, titled "Surgical Facial Rejuvenation: A Roadmap to Safe and Reliable Outcomes."
The text serves as a surgical atlas for procedures and the establishment, management, and marketing of a facial rejuvenation practice. Written with internationally recognized leaders in the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, the book offers guidance on safe and efficient techniques, which will result in effective and achievable outcomes.
The book also contains highlights on skin care, soft tissue fillers and hair replacement as well as the aging nose, a subject not often effectively discussed in other texts. Truswell also addresses important information on how to avoid and manage complications in surgery.
Truswell graduated from Hobart in 1968 with a degree in chemistry; he later received his Medical Degree from The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He received his general surgery training in Syracuse, and did a dual residency in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University Of Connecticut School Of Medicine. He now practices at the Aesthetic Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Northampton, Mass.
While at the Colleges, Truswell was a member of Delta Chi fraternity, Schola Cantorum, St. John's Guild, Canterbury Club, the Statesmen lacrosse and squash teams. As a student of chemistry, Truswell made dean's list and was an honors student.
