Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Alfonso Mejia, MD, MPH (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: "This step-by-step guide to surgical problems of the elbow is an excellent contribution to the "masters" series by Lippincott. "
Purpose: The illustrations and text are first rate and help place the reader in the position of looking over the shoulder of a master in the field. This is an excellent book for any surgeon who faces elbow pathology. This book meets the highest standards for clarity.
Audience: The use of high quality diagrams and pictures makes this an excellent text for physicians at all levels of training and practice with an interest in the elbow. The editor has assembled a stellar group of contributing authors.
Features: The authors cover surgical approaches, common trauma, nerve, ligament and tendon injury, and reconstructive options for the elbow. The clarity of the text along with high quality pictures and diagrams make this a uniquely useful book. It offers a more detailed postoperative regimen than is typically found in surgical books.
Assessment: This book is an excellent addition, indeed nearly a must-have, for any upper extremity surgeon's library. The second edition includes new surgical exposures and expands the previous sections on elbow arthoplasty and use of articulating external fixators.
