Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book is about caring for children and adolescents with musculoskeletal disorders or trauma.
Purpose: The main purpose is to present all aspects of pediatric orthopedics in a concise and thorough manner. This important goal is clearly met. John P. Dormans, MD, Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine is fully qualified to edit this publication. He is supported by 26 contributors most of whom have current or past educational connections with his institutions.
Audience: The book is written mainly for orthopedists and orthopedic residents caring for children and adolescents and for those preparing for examinations. The material also can be useful for primary care physicians, pediatricians, radiologists, and physical therapists.
Features: The two main areas covered are trauma and disorders of each anatomical area. Sports medicine, tumors, infections and skeletal dysplasias are discussed in separate chapters. Each of the book's 19 chapters consists of useful photos, tables, charts, and illustrations and the material is presented in a bullet format. The annotated references are current and adequate. Surgical techniques are not covered.
Assessment: This is one of a series of works referred to as Core Knowledge in Orthopedics. Other topics covered include the spine, trauma, sports medicine, and adult reconstruction and arthroplasty. A similar type of single volume series entitled Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and includes books on orthopedic pediatrics and seven other topics. The author of this book has done an excellent job of covering all the important aspects of pediatric orthopedics. Orthopedists preparing for examinations or those interested in brushing up their knowledge on this topic are strongly recommended to acquire this work. Medical science libraries are well advised to get this as a reference for their readers.
From the Publisher
"Dormans summarizes essential knowledge on pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine in a detailed outline style featuring numerous headings and bullet points, as well as b&w photos and medical images on almost every page and imaging tips..."-Book News, Inc.
