Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Expert orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons simplify the complex in this book, using a standard, organized format that is easy to follow, concise, and well written. They lead readers through descriptions of the foot and ankle physical examination, imaging, and common conditions using supplemental figures and clinical pictures to enhance key points.
Purpose: The objective is to present our working knowledge of the foot and ankle using simple-to-understand concepts and explanations. This is a worthy goal at a time when advances in biological science have made the understanding of the functioning of the musculoskeletal system seem more difficult.
Audience: This book is written for surgeons, practitioners, residents, therapists, and students interested in mastering the concepts of the common adult foot and ankle disorders.
Features: Covering the diagnosis and management of common adult ankle and foot maladies, the book does an excellent job, especially with regard to tendon problems. The chapter on fractures is less thorough. The book does not address pediatric problems and, therefore, might be better titled "Musculoskeletal Examination of the Adult Foot and Ankle."
Assessment: This book's usefulness lies in its brevity and its success in simplifying what we understand about conditions of the adult foot and ankle. It would be a worthwhile addition to a medical library frequented by junior residents, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and therapists.
