Recommended Reading List

A new VT OD recently asked for a listing of books to explore new horizons. This post is the result. It is a simple listing of books that I enjoy and have found especially helpful in a) learning procedures, and b) understanding the background to ‘why’ we do what we do.

I’ve broken these into two categories, as you might expect: Clinical, and Background. I will return to modify this list over time.
