Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book covers musculoskeletal disorders and trauma in children and adolescents.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the most up-to-date surgical technologies to treat common or selected problems with the intention of maximizing good outcomes.
Audience: The main audiences are pediatric orthopedic surgeons and general orthopedists caring for children and young adults. This is part of a series entitled Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery which began in 1994. The editors of this volume are nationally and internationally known.
Features: Six sections cover trauma, cerebral palsy, hips, feet, knees, and spine. The spine section covers the most topics, followed by trauma and the hips. Each chapter includes indications, contraindications, preoperative management, complications, illustrative care, pearls and pitfalls, and a few references. Each chapter is well illustrated with good quality photographs, radiographs, and line drawings.
Assessment: Readers should not expect to find description of most surgical techniques used in pediatric orthopedics in this book. However, the topics covered are current, thorough, and very well done. I strongly recommend this to all orthopedists treating children and adolescents.
