Description: This encyclopedic two-volume text covers all aspects of knee surgery, including nonsurgical treatment as well as current case controversies.
Purpose: The book aims to present, in a practical and readily comprehensible way, the most current basic science and clinical information on the knee as well as current surgical approaches and techniques that would be readily accessible to the practicing orthopedist.
Audience: It is targeted at the practicing orthopedic surgeon as well as the resident-in-training. The authors are highly credible and have both the expertise and experience to produce this review of contemporary knee surgery. They have succeeded in creating a valuable reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents-in-training, and fellows in sports medicine and adult reconstructive surgery.
Features: The two volumes are filled with high-quality, descriptive illustrations as well as copious amounts of current and historical references to allow the reader to seek additional information if needed.
Assessment: Very few textbooks available offer a broad comprehensive review of all aspects of knee surgery. This encyclopedic reference of knee surgery is a welcome exception. The highly respected authors have succeeded in creating a valuable reference. It should be at the heart of any institutional medical library and a valued addition to those who perform knee surgery.
