Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This updated edition of a title in the popular series, Master's Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery, is dedicated to the knee. The book is organized in sections covering the patellofemoral joint, meniscus injuries, ligament injuries, and cartilage injuries, with each chapter authored by a true master of orthopedic surgery.
Purpose: Dr. Jackson has upgraded the previous offering with 15 new chapters and 20 updated chapters that bring readers up-to-date on a number of the most common procedures in orthopedic surgery. The goal is to serve as a guide to assist readers in becoming a master of these techniques. Dr. Jackson and his expert authors have done an impressive job of accomplishing their task.
Audience: Residents in training, general orthopedists, and established subspecialists will all find this book beneficial.
Features: The chapters are well written and efficient and allow readers to confidently, safely, and successfully perform each procedure. The figures and photos are of very high quality and are effective in helping readers reproduce the techniques. Each chapter is organized into sections of indications/contraindications, preoperative planning, surgical principles, technique, postoperative management, complications, and outcomes. As a bonus, the book provides access to an interactive website.
Assessment: Dr. Jackson should be commended for bringing together a group of master surgeons to create this valuable, user friendly reference for orthopedic surgeons. The book is another step forward compared to the already impressive first and second editions of this book. The chapters are current and well written, making this a must for the orthopedic library. It will be a valued addition to the personal library of orthopedic surgeons and especially orthopedic sports specialists.
