Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Benjamin A Goldberg, M.D.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a nearly comprehensive shoulder surgery book whose authors and contributors are nearly all leaders in the field.
Purpose: This book deals with anatomy, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of the vast majority of clinical problems encountered in the treatment of the shoulder. The book deals with multiple, sometimes competing viewpoints (i.e., arthroscopy vs. open, glenoid replacement vs. hemiarthroplasty) in as nonbiased a manner as is possible. The authors are to be commended for putting together this well balanced presentation.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons and residents are the audience. The authors are world leaders in shoulder surgery.
Features: The book is nearly comprehensive in its coverage. Nearly all sections are excellent, from developmental and gross anatomy to congenital abnormalities, history, physical, and radiographic evaluations, mechanics, anesthesia, fractures, instability, arthritis, infections, tumors, and tendonopathies/tears. It also describes and summarizes evaluation techniques. A serious arthroscopist would probably require another book, although the included DVD is helpful.
Assessment: This is the gold standard comprehensive shoulder book in terms of depth and authority of the contributors. This edition updates the excellent second edition.
From the Publisher
"I anticipate that most surgeons who have a sincere interest in treating shoulder problems will want to have this book on the shelf. In addition, orthopaedic departments will wish to have this book in their libraries for use by staff members who treat shoulder problems less frequently and for the education of residents and fellows. Broad-based practitioners will find this text useful because of its thoughtful review of contemporary thought as well as its information on rarer conditions, which is hard to find in a collective way elsewhere. Congratulations to the editors and authors for a job well done." — Robert H Cofield, MD, Mayo Clinic

The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, Vol 87-A, No 7. July 2005

"This third edition contains the latest data available to the clinician regarding both diagnosis and treatment. The authors have done a splendid job in chronicling their subject, directing their audience on every aspect of the shoulder practice and an excellent job in discussing how to proceed with treatment according to the individual needs of the patient. The Shoulder is likely to be the only reference text physicians will use on a daily basis in the course of their practice."

The Electric Review, March/April 2005

Douglas B. McKeag
The editors have revised every chapter in this quintessential book on the shoulder. They have updated illustrations, added more depth in the first seven chapters, and have in general strengthened the comprehensiveness of the book. In short, this second edition has helped establish it as THE reference book for the shoulder in medicine. It is meant to be a comprehensive work outlining diagnosis, treatment, and management of shoulder injuries and abnormalities. The editors have succeeded in making this work practical and to the point. In addition, they have added a CD-ROM program for the operative surgeon. This book would be of interest to anyone who deals with patients with shoulder problems. It would make a good reference book for practitioners, whether they are surgeons or not. The organization of the book is not, thankfully, dominated by surgical procedures. Instead, it helps treat and manage. I also think it would be useful for learners (residents and fellows, as well as other professionals such as physical therapists and trainers). This two-volume text is liberally augmented with illustrations, the majority of which appear to be extremely well done. References are up to date and current, and the book is well indexed. The table of contents shows that the editors have chosen to divide the text based upon major common pathology and their approach to diagnosis and management. I particularly enjoyed the first seven chapters, which contained the best overview of the biomechanics of the shoulder I have come across. This continues to remain the quintessential reference work on the shoulder. I think it has been well laid out and is easy to use. Because of the significantadvancements in shoulder pathology treatment, this remains a particularly useful book. The second edition certainly offers new information to justify replacement of the first edition. My congratulations to the editors and contributors of this significant work.
