Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: One of the most respected textbooks on skeletal trauma, this thorough and extensive work includes discussions of basic science, trauma management, and specific reconstruction and surgical techniques. This edition not only updates the 2003 edition, it also includes a high quality DVD and online options to maximize its value for technologically savvy readers.
Purpose: The goal of this new edition is to refashion the information to better impart the basic science, injury management, and post-traumatic reconstruction involved in skeletal trauma. This has been identified as the primary text by programs throughout the world and the editors and publisher hope to maintain this status with the new edition. These clearly are valuable objectives and the editors have done an exceptional job of improving upon the excellence readers have grown to expect from this book. The DVD and online options provide additional value.
Audience: As with the previous editions, this one is designed to serve as the key reference on skeletal trauma for orthopedists of all levels of experience ranging from residents to established orthopedic attendings and trauma surgeons.
Features: The two-volume book, at nearly 3,000 pages in length, comprehensively covers the gamut of skeletal trauma from basic science to the most specific of injuries. The DVD adds videos of techniques and the online offering includes web-based access to the book. These easy to use additions bring this leading reference into the 21st century and make it a welcome resource for the next generation of orthopedic surgeons.
Assessment: This is an essential part of every orthopedic library and will be much used by orthopedic residents and attendings. The DVD and online access addends state-of-the-art educational technology to this respected reference. I will maintain mine at the ready for the nights I face trauma call.
From the Publisher

"The secret of success in a major text such as this is the quality of the editing which is masterly . . . The editors of the book are to be congratulated." - JBJS, review of the last edition

"It is difficult to find fault with this edition of Skeletal Trauma. Such a comprehensive resource can sometimes be unwieldy and rather intimidating to its readers, but not in this case. It remains a standard reference which should be part of the armamentarium of every orthopaedic department." Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, August 2009
