Overview

Operative Techniques in Sports Medicine Surgery provides full-color, step-by-step explanations of all operative procedures in sports medicine. It contains the sports-related chapters from Sam W. Wiesel's Operative Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery. Written by experts from leading institutions around the world, this superbly illustrated volume focuses on mastery of operative techniques and also provides a thorough understanding of how to select the best procedure, how to avoid complications, and what outcomes to expect.

The user-friendly format is ideal for quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. Each procedure is broken down step by step, with full-color intraoperative photographs and drawings that demonstrate how to perform each technique. Extensive use of bulleted points and tables allows quick and easy reference.

Each clinical problem is discussed in the same format: definition, anatomy, physical exams, pathogenesis, natural history, physical findings, imaging and diagnostic studies, differential diagnosis, non-operative management, surgical management, pearls and pitfalls, postoperative care, outcomes, and complications. To ensure that the material fully meets residents' needs, the text was reviewed by a Residency Advisory Board.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: In the preface to this book on sports medicine surgery, one of the editors notes that, while the authors of each chapter briefly address the issues of why and when to do a surgery, the key focus is on providing a systematic, highly visual book on how to perform specific techniques.
Purpose: With that premise defined, it is, therefore, the goal is to provide a reference that readers can use to review a specific procedure, see it, and immediately be able to take the information to the operating room with minimal surprises and a foundational understanding of the sequence required to successfully perform the procedure. These are worthy goals and, when accomplished, particularly valuable for orthopedic surgeons or residents in training who do not perform the specific surgery routinely. While it is not possible to alert surgeons to every possible challenge that might present itself, this book does a wonderful job of setting out the basic sequence needed to succeed in most cases.
Audience: As an established sports medicine doctor, I must admit that I am set in my ways on some techniques, but this book does a nice job of teaching an old dog new tricks. More importantly, for surgeons who do more knees, or shoulders, or hips, this book is a wonderful presurgical review for the cases they do less frequently. By the same token, it is a great presurgical reference for residents and fellows who have seldom or never seen the techniques. Mark Miller long ago established himself as one of the most respected orthopedic educators in the world. He really understands the needs of the learner and, with Sam Wiesel, he has brought together an impressive group of contributors to write about specific anatomic regions and techniques.
Features: The book moves from shoulder to ankle to describe the most common surgical techniques performed by or orthopedic sports specialists. Each chapter has a similar organization, leading with a few basics but focusing primarily on the technique itself. It is obvious that the belief is that a picture is worth a thousand words, as the book is generous with the number of quality images that truly help readers understand the sequence of a given operative technique. If there is any shortcoming, it is in the acknowledgement that there is always more than one way to skin a cat. In a book that covers all of orthopedic sports medicine, it is not possible to demonstrate every alternative technique.
Assessment: This book only confirms what I have known for a long time. Mark Miller is a wonderful educator and knows how to bring experts together to create a wonderful teaching and educational tool. It is current, easy to read, efficient, and fulfills the goal of assisting readers to successfully perform the most common techniques in sports medicine. While I fully intend to put a copy in the operating room for my residents to review before each case, they can't have mine — I like it too much!
