Techniques of Botulinum Toxin Injections in the Head and Neck is a simple, direct reference that illustrates specific techniques of performing Botulinum toxins (Botox) in the head and neck. All techniques are well-illustrated to allow for use as a quick technical reference.

This book not only provides well-illustrated technical vignettes, but also addresses the many possible potential uses of Botox in the head and neck, from neurologic and functional disorders, to headaches, to cosmetic applications.

From the Foreword
Drs. Benninger and Knott have provided the clinician a useful reference guide for applications of botulinum toxins in the head and neck region. Their efforts are particularly utilitarian as they effectively cover both the function and aesthetic applications of this powerful tool.

  • Imran Khan, MBBS, MRCS, DOHNS, ENT & Audiology News (September 2014):
    "This book is a simple and an illustrative guide for applications of Botox in ENT related conditions, including its cosmetic application. It also has an interesting chapter on the history of medical application of Botox. Benninger and Knott have co-authored a reader-friendly guide; providing clear indications and instructions on Botox use in ENT related dystonias, functional disorders and cosmetic applications. The diagrammatic representation of the injection sites and the simplicity of the described techniques for Botox application in all conditions are very helpful and informative. Overall the book is a nice introduction to the use of Botox. I would recommend this book as an easy technical reference guide for otolaryngologists and facial plastic surgeons wo are, or are thinking of using Botox as a part of their armamentarium."

  • Alan Micco, M.D. (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine), Doody's Review Service:
    "The clear, well-drawn illustrations that demonstrate exactly where the injections should be made are the book's strongest feature...This is a high quality, well-illustrated instruction manual on the clinical use of botulinum toxin injections in the treatment of a variety of head and neck disorders. It provides very clear illustrations and explicit instructions on the technique for each disorder."
