Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a book devoted to describing orthopedic surgical procedures.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an update and to add new chapters to detail approaches for new surgical procedures.
Audience: The audience includes orthopedic surgeons, particularly orthopedic residents.
Features: Each of the 13 chapters is dedicated to a joint or a specific anatomical area in the upper extremities, lower extremities, pelvic, and spine. All surgical approaches to these various structures are described in detail, starting from positioning the patient on the operating room table, to accurate placement of the incision, superficial and deep dissections. All are demonstrated with high quality and easy to understand color illustrations.
Assessment: This is an outstanding publication which will serve as a reference for orthopedic surgeons and residents. It is the best book on orthopedic surgical approaches available today.
