Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Using a bulleted text format and color illustrations paired side-by-side with operative photographs, this book clearly presents orthopedic surgical anatomy and surgical approaches.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the best possible information, in text and multiplane diagrams and photographs, on various surgical exposures. This worthwhile objective is well met.
Audience: This book is written for orthopedic residents and registrars. However, practicing surgeons will find it useful when preparing for an especially challenging case and students can't discover such a reference too soon. The contributors are authorities in their designated areas and have done a marvelous job.
Features: In addition to providing an anatomic review of surgical approaches with over 1,000 color drawings, this book instructs readers about optimal patient positioning and how to avoid nerve injuries. The drawings are particularly well done.
Assessment: This second edition (first edition 2008) has been completely revised to feature a new modern design, encompassing updated imaging modalities and arthroscopic techniques. While anatomy doesn't change, our ability to understand and visualize it has become more refined and this book depicts this well. This is an essential addition to the medical library.
