From the Publisher

 "This is not an indications book; it is a how-to book, akin to a cookbook, and the recipes are thorough and very instructive. Conveniently, it includes access to the complete contents online. The color photographs and diagrams as well as the x-ray images are particularly noteworthy."

"This is a necessary component of the academic orthopedic surgical library. The online access capability will help residents prepare for participating in a particular trauma operation."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book purports to address society's mandate to our profession: better orthopedic surgery at less cost. It provides surgical approaches to 46 common, but often problematic, fractures, that, when correctly done, have proven to be safe and effective.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the author, is to provide a treatise that surgeons can reference when treating patients with various extremity and pelvic fractures. This worthwhile objective is met.
Audience: This book is clearly intended for practitioners and residents in orthopedic surgery who are seeking thorough and vivid descriptions of fracture repair operations.
Features: This is not an indications book; it is a how-to book, akin to a cookbook, and the recipes are thorough and very instructive. Conveniently, it includes access to the complete contents online. The color photographs and diagrams as well as the x-ray images are particularly noteworthy.
Assessment: This is a necessary component of the academic orthopedic surgical library. The online access capability will help residents prepare for participating in a particular trauma operation. This edition includes several, although not many, significant updates to the 2006 second edition.
