This book is dedicated to Jacqueline Perry, M.D. who has been a mentor and a friend, and who stimulated our interest in surgical anatomy. For decades she has helped keep alive the anatomy lab at the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center that allowed residents to practice surgical approaches and procedures before going to the operating room.
