The first book on complications in refractive surgery, written by Doctor Alió, has over 15,000 downloads
It is the second edition of ‘Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery’ published by the prestigious publisher Springer.
The second edition of ‘Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery’ is the latest publication launched by Dr. Jorge Alio, which has already achieved great success in the world of ophthalmology. It has been published this year in colour, by the prestigious scientific publisher Springer, and in just four months it has achieved 15,320 downloads. It is the first book devoted to complications in refractive surgery with practical advice and reports on the results provided by ophthalmological surgeons. In addition, professionals can find the most appropriate solutions for the most frequent problems, as well as guidelines to avoid and treat complications.
Dr. Jorge Alio, who has been ranked twelfth among the world’s most influential ophthalmologists in the list of 100 professionals, entitled “The Power List 2018” drawn up by the British magazine ‘The Ophthalmologist’, collaborated with Dr. Dimitri T. Azar, a renowned physician-scientist, expert in corneal diseases and the Dean of the College of Medicine at University of Illinois, Chicago. ‘Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery’ complements the authors’ successful previous book ‘Difficult and Complicated Cases in Refractive Surgery ‘ (2015), in which worldwide leaders in the field document a wide range of challenging cases drawn from their own clinical practice. This book has already replaced the first edition of ‘Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery’ (2008).
It should be recalled, that Jorge Alio, the professor at the Miguel Hernandez University of Elche (UMH) is also the author of other successful books such as ‘Keratoconus. Recent Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment’, which was published in 2017. It is the most current work on this eye disease in which the normally round, dome-like cornea becomes thin and develops a cone-like bulge. ‘Text and Atlas on Corneal Pigmentation’ (2015), the first work in the world devoted to femtosecond laser assisted corneal (or kerato) pigmentation. ‘Studies on the Cornea and Lens’ (2015), which contains an in-depth analysis of basic scientific concepts for professionals who work in the field of eye diseases
In 2014 Dr. Jorge Alio, the medical director of Vissum, the research institute and the largest eye institute in Europe, also published ‘Multifocal Intraocular Lenses’, a review of all aspects of multifocal intraocular lenses that provides cutting-edge information for cataract and refractive surgeons; and ‘Immune Modulation and Anti-Inflammatory Therapy in Ocular Disorders ‘, the most recently updated instructions on the treatment and prevention of eye inflammation. In 2010 Jorge Alio published ‘Minimizing Incisions and Maximizing Outcomes in Cataract Surgery’, which contains the updated information on new trends in cataract surgery, including the new microincisional cataract surgery (MICS).
It should be reminded that Jorge Alio, the academic of the Royal Academy of Medicine of the Valencian Community (RAMCV), has recently published an article “Cellular therapy of the corneal stroma: Real approach or science fiction?” in the prestigious journal “Ophthalmology Times Europe”. The article is devoted to the research, carried out by the doctor and his collaborators, into extraocular mesenchymal stem cells, which could be an alternative to the classical cornea transplantation.
The constant study and dedication by Dr. Alio have been key factors for patients to have placed him among the best doctors in Spain within the framework of the ‘Top Doctors’ directory. Also, he was recently chosen by the newspaper El Mundo as one of the ten doctors in ‘The elite of the scalpel’, being the only ophthalmologist selected.
