Overview

There have been many changes in children's orthopaedics and considerable developments in fracture management, markedly improved use of external fixators and the scientific development of, for example, the Taylor spatial frame to correct complex deformities. The use of ultrasound has increased considerably in the diagnosis of children's disorders and there are more sophisticated ways of analysing deformities. There are also new classifications for unstable slipped epiphysis and our genetic understanding of children's disorders has increased exponentially.

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of this comprehensive pediatric orthopedic reference.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide medical students, orthopedic residents, and pediatricians with a source of basic information on children's musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
Audience: The intended audience includes medical students and orthopedic residents, but it also should include family practitioners, pediatricians, and emergency room physicians.
Features: The book begins with the general principles related to pediatric orthopedics, followed by systemic disorders and regional disorders that include lower extremity, upper extremity, and spine. The final section is dedicated to fractures.
Assessment: This is certainly a comprehensive reference on pediatric orthopedics. It provides abbreviated essential information on the disorders. It is a good source of knowledge for the targeted audience, medical students and orthopedic residents. It also would be of help to physicians in other specialties involved in the management of pediatric patients. It is well written and easy to read. However, if more detailed and precise information is needed, readers must look to other sources.
