A standard textbook for 25 years, Surgical Exposures in Orthopaedics: The Anatomic Approach is now in its Fourth Edition. Featuring 775 full-color illustrations, this atlas demonstrates the surgical approaches used in orthopaedics and provides a surgeon's-eye view of the relevant anatomy. Each chapter details the techniques and pitfalls of a surgical approach, gives a clear preview of anatomic landmarks and incisions, and highlights potential dangers of superficial and deep dissection.

The Fourth Edition describes new minimally invasive approaches to the spine, proximal humerus, humeral shaft, distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal tibia. Other highlights include new external fixation approaches for many regions and surgical approaches to the os calcis. New illustrations of the appendicular skeleton are included. New drawings show the important neurovascular structures that need to be protected.

This book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
