Description: This is the definitive work on the care and diagnosis of fractures in children. It is the natural companion to a similar text on adult fractures (Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults, 6th edition, Bucholz et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005)).
Purpose: The book is comprehensive (over 1,200 pages), clear, and well written by over 40 contributing authors, all of whom are recognized for their expertise in pediatric orthopedic trauma.
Audience: It is intended for residents and practitioners of orthopedic surgery.
Features: This book covers all of pediatric trauma. It provides a comprehensive approach to the management of pediatric fractures with a final recommendation of care by the given author.
Assessment: This is the best work in this area. The general texts in pediatric orthopedics and handbooks on treatment of fractures do not provide the detail of pathophysiology and management that this one does.
