Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark Gonzalez, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a guide to common problems in reconstruction of the adult hip, knee, elbow, and shoulder.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide practicing orthopedic surgeons with a unique volume on adult reconstruction.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons and residents are the intended audience.
Features: Although relatively short, the book has very practical and up-to-date information on adult reconstruction. It would be most useful for orthopedic residents and general orthopedic surgeons and less useful for orthopedic subspecialists.
Assessment: The particular strength of this book is that it covers key points of adult reconstruction but is relatively short. The references are up to date and pertinent. It is perfect for busy orthopedic surgeons who practice general orthopedics and want a concise review of the current literature.
