'Patient Guide' Series Takes the Gibberish Out of Medicine
Date:3/18/2009

PLANO, Texas, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- It can be difficult for patients looking for information to find professional advice without having to wade through pages of medical jargon or shameless propaganda. The "Patient Guide" series from W.J. Sonnier Publishing is taking the gibberish out of medicine and offering straightforward, professional information in terms patients can understand.

Dr. D.J. Verret is the author of the first two books in the "Patient Guide" collection, "The Patient Guide to Cosmetic Facial Procedures" and "The Patient Guide to Hair Loss and Hair Restoration." Dr. Verret is a specialist working exclusively in the field of facial surgery following extensive training in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology. During his post residency fellowship at the University of Missouri -- Columbia, Dr. Verret was involved in over 400 facial plastic surgery procedures, and he has helped thousands of patients since opening his own practice.

His experience led to the launch of "The Patient Guide to Cosmetic Facial Procedures," which offers patients a medical professional's view on the numerous surgical and non-surgical procedures currently available for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Verret explains, in depth, the benefits and risks associated with today's most common procedures, including face and neck lifts, cheek and chin augmentation, chemical peels, facial resurfacing, ear pinning and rhinoplasty (the traditional nose job).

"The Patient Guide to Hair Loss & Hair Restoration," Dr. Verret's second book in the series, provides patients with details about the causes of hair loss, how to prevent hair loss and what to do after balding has begun. The book provides extensive information on hair restoration surgery, herbal supplementation, diet modification, low level laser light therapy and hair replacement systems, including wigs and toupees.

W.J. Sonnier is offering discounts on all "Patient Guide" books to medical professionals interested in using them for patient education purposes.

Dr. Verret's professional career extends far beyond his practice and the "Patient Guide" books. He is a regular speaker at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School Otolaryngology Grand Rounds conference and acts as a clinical assistant professor at the university itself. He also sits on the board of directors for the Texas Cosmetic Surgery Society and has been invited to be a member of the faculty for the latest American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowships.

"I'm proud ... to teach the next generation of surgeons the craft I love," states Dr. Verret.
