Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This impressive book covers the full gamut of operative procedures for the elbow, dedicating sections to trauma, instability, arthritis, pediatrics, stiffness, and sports. The editors have created a book with a very international flavor with contributions from leaders in the field from Europe, the U.S., and Australia.
Purpose: The preface reminds us that the progressive advance in operative procedures for elbow problems has been rapid over the past several years. Based on this premise, the book emphasizes the importance of a high-quality, current reference about these problems that orthopedic surgeons can use to ensure they are offering the best options to their patients. Ultimately, they note that their goal is the same as our goal as surgeons: the optimization of care for our patients.
Audience: The target audience for any surgery book includes the surgeons who commonly perform the procedures, the residents or fellows in training learning to perform the procedures, and surgeons who wish to stay current. This book serves all of these roles in the area of elbow surgery. The editors have done an admirable job of recruiting a prestigious group of international contributors who are recognized experts in their respective areas. The international flavor helps us to think outside the box, but it also reminds us how similar our approaches are.
Features: The book is packed with high quality images and targeted discussions on specific elbow problems, and it also includes an access code for an online version that allows you to take your orthopedic library anywhere you bring your laptop. The book is thorough and comprehensive, and a wonderful reference for operative elbow surgery.
Assessment: Compared to classic older versions of books dedicated to the elbow, this one has several advantages making it a worthy addition to a surgeon's library. The online access improves accessibility and usability beyond the library where the book is shelved. It is also up to date, with the added bonus of an international flavor. It is a wonderful book for surgeons currently performing elbow surgery to gain some perspective and it is a quality first reference for residents, fellows-in-training, and surgeons who perform elbow surgery less often.
