Publications: MEDICAL LASER REPORT

Posted Oct 23 2008 1:32pm

In addition to writing a monthly column for Ocular Surgery News, I also prepared regular articles for Medical Laser Report, in some cases preparing slightly different versions of the same information for both publications. I wrote for MLR for eleven years, from January 1993 to August 2003. Since none of the articles are online on the MLR website, anyone wanting to read any of them will have to contact me. I have computer files for most and hard copies of many.

A few of the following articles, shown in bold, have been published on this web site.

Here are the articles prepared for Medical Laser Report:
