This is a well-illustrated and informative treatment of surgical procedures performed on the elbow. Beautiful intraoperative photography supplemented with clear line drawings make this book an outstanding operative atlas. The purpose is to ""demonstrate the surgical procedures that are effective for the management of elbow pathology."" The elbow is often involved as compared to the knee, hip, or shoulder, and this book is a useful addition to the orthopedic literature. The book is targeted to the practicing orthopedic surgeon, but it would also be very useful to the orthopedic resident who is learning new procedures. The author is a well-respected elbow surgeon, and the individual chapters are written by physicians who are preeminently qualified and experienced. The book is well organized, indexed, and referenced. The illustrations are of superior quality. This book is extremely useful to the orthopedic surgeon doing elbow surgery. The illustrations and diagrams are extremely clear and informative. Sections on preoperative diagnosis and postoperative management provide a thoughtful and logical approach to common surgical problems about the elbow.

Demonstrates the surgical procedures that are effective for the management of elbow pathology. The selection of particular topics is based on common conditions that present to general orthopaedic surgeons, as well as some topics designed to provide a spectrum appropriate for more experienced surgeons. While the emphasis is on the technical aspects of the procedure, the indications and contraindications are clearly delineated in each chapter. Notes on the postoperative program and special tips and insights to help avoid or treat the more common complications associated with each procedure are also included. Thoroughly illustrated with color photographs and b&w drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
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

Highly recommended.
