Overview

Written by two authorities in pediatric orthopaedics, this book is a complete, practical, and highly illustrated guide to handling difficult orthopaedic problems in children. In an engaging and informal style, the authors offer advice for avoiding pitfalls in diagnosing and treating the full range of musculoskeletal disorders, including trauma, orthopaedic infections, bone and soft tissue tumors, skeletal dysplasias, neuromuscular conditions, congenital syndromes, problems in pediatric athletes, and conditions of the spine, hip, leg, and foot.

Throughout the book are guest appearances by "gurus," the leading experts and mentors in pediatric orthopaedics, presenting essential unique tips on handling the special needs of children. To facilitate easy access for the busy clinician, information is provided in boxes and bulleted lists containing summary points, complications to avoid, surgical steps, and treatment recommendations by age.
