Overview

A well-known and respected authority in pediatric orthopaedics has prepared this comprehensive volume using his "less is more" approach to the specifics of pediatric treatment. The practical, current, and convenient book features perspectives gleaned from interviews with 50 leading contributors in the field. It is designed to appeal to residents early in their training, and to orthopaedists who treat less complicated cases. Although surgical technique is included, the text emphasizes principles of treatment. Extensive algorithms, drawings, color photos, and radiographs supplement authoritative writing and make this book a colorful, engaging reference for practitioners.

A Brandon-Hill recommended title.

Designed for general orthopedists, residents, pediatricians, physical therapists, and students, this generously illustrated full-color reference is a practical, authoritative how-to guide to the essentials of pediatric orthopedics. Dr. Staheli provides current, clinically proven, mainstream, whole child oriented management recommendations for musculoskeletal problems in children. The book features over 2,300 full-color photographs and drawings and numerous flowcharts to guide patient management. For this updated and expanded Second Edition, Dr. Staheli has recruited eight distinguished co-authors to contribute new information. Illustrations have been updated and many new illustrations have been added. The upper limb and hand chapters have been separated and expanded.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This "how-to" book covers the mainstream practice of children's musculoskeletal disorders.
Purpose: The book is written in a format that maximizes the use of color photographs, drawings and figures (over 2,500) at the expense of words. Most pages are divided into two halves; one side has numerous illustrations and the other written script. The author's objectives are to teach pediatric orthopedics in an efficient and reader-friendly ways. These objectives are met for the most part.
Audience: The book is written mainly for orthopedists and orthopedic trainees. Other medical professionals working in this field can make excellent use of this work as well. The editor, Lynn T. Staheli, MD, is internationally recognized as a renowned pediatric orthopedist. He is a professor of orthopedics at the University of Washington School of Medicine and orthopedic attending at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center as well as the co-editor of the Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics. He relies on a number of consultants to formulate opinions on different issues. Most authors are accessible by e-mail address for any inquiries regarding their topic. The publisher has permitted an informal but effective format by adding color, passport-size photos of all contributors, technical staff, and even family members.
Features: The book is divided into 17 chapters, all with current references. All aspects of pediatric orthopedics such as foot, hip, trauma, spine, infection, tumors, etc. are covered. More space is given to color illustrations than other medical textbooks. The photos are small, of excellent quality and numerous. In any one page, there may be as many as six figures with 12 photos. In certain chapters such as the one on the spine, Dr. Staheli relies more on his consultants to write the chapters. Unique in the book is the chapter on procedures. Here all surgical procedures are described in detail and all critical steps are illustrated. I recently performed the Staheli slotted acetabular augmentation procedure and used the book to review this uncommon procedure. It was very thorough, to the point, and well illustrated. The final chapter is devoted to information for parents and growth charts. Flowcharts and the concept of caring for the whole child guide patient care.
Assessment: This refreshing major work can be described as concise, authoritative, engaging, interactive, colorful, and current. The editor is very knowledgeable and knows a lot about desktop publishing and core pediatric orthopedics. As co-editor of the JPO for several years, he has critically reviewed hundreds of papers for publication, some of which are referred to in this book. One can be assured that treatment recommendations represent middle-of-the-road consensus. The editor's personal contributions to the natural history of flat foot and the role of shoe wear in this condition represent other important contributions. The almost limitless use of illustrations may be the by-product of the digital camera and other computer advances. In the case of this work, there are a number of superfluous illustrations and some stamp size photos are just too small. I strongly recommend this work to all orthopedists caring for children. Orthopedic residents are encouraged to read this landmark book before graduation. Medical science libraries ought to make this important work available to all interested readers.
