Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery: The Elbowby Bernard F. Morrey
This is a classic how-to-do-it book by the world's leading authority on elbow surgery. Each chapter presents preoperative decision-making in brief, easy to read sections, and progresses through patient positioning, step-by-step presentation of the procedure itself, inclusive of many photographs and illustrations, and ends with brief descriptions of post-op considerations, and potential complications.
Description: Yes, it is time to return to the master. This is the third edition of the volume in the Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery dedicated to the elbow and is once again led by the elbow master himself, Bernard Morrey. Clearly, this is a timely update of a book last published in 2005. This series has become a recognized go-to technical reference for surgeons.
Purpose: The goal of the series is to provide guiding technical pearls from key leaders on a specific orthopedic topic. This edition is no different and clearly accomplished the goal under the guidance of Bernard Morrey and his impressive group of contributors.
Audience: The audience includes practicing orthopedic surgeons, shoulder and elbow specialists, and residents and fellows in training who wish to improve their skills and stay current.
Features: The book efficiently walks through the various pathologies that can occur about the elbow and presents the state of the art of the broad range of options for treatment, including both arthroscopic and open approaches. It is important that a book dedicated to technique includes high quality images that enable readers to reproduce the procedures in practice. The quality here is impressive.
Assessment: I have always been impressed with the entire Master Techniques series as an excellent reference for orthopedic techniques. This volume dedicated to the elbow has gathered a most impressive group of instructors who are preeminent in the field. This edition is a timely update and is a must have for the institutional orthopedic library and a worthy addition to the personal library of every practitioner of elbow surgery.

Excellent textbook for the experienced elbow surgeon but particularly for the upper limb surgeon who is asked to undertake the complex trauma and elective elbow problems that present to their orthopaedic department.
Each chapter has a similar format with a brief introduction, indications and contraindications for surgery, preoperative planning, surgical technique, results and complications
High-quality operative photographs and diagrams
Explains how to deal with the complications of elbow trauma
An essential addition that, ideally, should be available in the surgeon’s room within the operating theatre complex
