Overview

Operative Orthopaedics is a definitive and comprehensive guide to elective orthopaedic surgery for trainees preparing for FRCS and surgeons at MRCS level. With the emphasis on techniques employed and the reasoning behind them, this book is both a practical instruction manual and a revision tool.

Based on the authoritative 'Stanmore course' run by the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Operative Orthopaedics covers all aspects of elective orthopaedic surgery as assessed by the FRCS Higher Specialty exams. Surgery of the upper limb, lower limb and spine is explained from preoperative planning through technique and potential complications. Specialist areas such as tumour surgery, paediatric surgery and limb reconstruction are also included. Each chapter concludes with key references and sample viva voce questions and answers to extend and reinforce learning.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a wonderful handbook for orthopedic residents in training that efficiently moves through preoperative planning, indications and risks, technical pearls and structures at risk, and classic postoperative instructions and issues. It takes a sequential approach through various areas of the body and the most common orthopedic procedures for each. Each section ends with 20 review questions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a condensed, efficient overview for residents in training. It is a great handbook for residents to carry in the clinic when obtaining preoperative consents, to the operating room when preparing for surgery, and for writing postoperative orders. A thorough read before beginning orthopedic surgery rotations will position the young resident in a position to excel.
Audience: The targeted audience is clearly residents in training, but the book also would be useful for subspecialists as a brief review before proceeding with the care of a patient with a condition that would not classically be in their subspecialty area of expertise. The authors are from the U.K. and there is some talk about certification testing there. However, the content is universal and appropriate for a U.S. audience.
Features: The book is efficiently organized by anatomic region and each section uses the subheadings of preoperative assessment, intraoperative care, postoperative care, and recommended references. Each section concludes with a series of 20 "viva" questions that serve as excellent, open-ended approaches to the information just presented. The only limitation is the same in any handbook: it cannot contain every surgical procedure and approach. Nonetheless, the authors have done a wonderful job of selecting the most common procedures, which probably cover over 95% of orthopedic practice.
Assessment: This is one of the best books for residents that I have seen in some time. I have shared it with our program director and will likely make it required reading for junior orthopedic residents who are transitioning from an internship. As a subspecialist in practice for over 17 years, I will keep my guide close at hand on those days I take general call so I can be ready for anything that arises.
