Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This 172-page primer is an efficient reference for a myriad of fundamental arthroscopic techniques, from the ankle through the hip and the wrist through the shoulder. It is logically organized by anatomic part and uses a bullet-point format that makes it a go-to reference. As good as the book is, the WOW feature is the superb DVD that provides numerous videos and narrated presentations.
Purpose: The authors acknowledge that there is a plethora of arthroscopic books, but remind us that none are dedicated to the beginning arthroscopist.
Audience: The book and DVD are designed for residents, fellows, and beginning arthroscopists and they will benefit the most. Over the years, the authors have often been referred to as "up-and-coming" stars of the field. Now, such a reference would do them a disservice as they have truly arrived and are considered premier educators by their colleagues and students.
Features: Although I enjoyed thumbing through the book and found it an efficient read with its bulleted format, I was most impressed by the videos on the DVD. The wonderful presentations of arthroscopic techniques are like doing a mini-fellowship in general arthroscopy. They are so good, they would be a wonderful review even for experienced arthroscopists who want to optimize their techniques.
Assessment: This is a wonderful teaching publication which will be of great benefit to all residents and fellows learning arthroscopy. The videos represent a complete collection of techniques across the entire gamut of arthroscopy. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth...well a lot more than that. I would definitely buy this for my residents.
