Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

With so many fracture and trauma textbooks already published, is there a place for yet another text on the subject? The answer to this question is yes. Surgical Treatment of Orthopaedic Trauma is an excellent adjunct for residents, fellows, and attending physicians who are and will be charged with treating the growing population of patients with orthopaedic trauma. The 1000 page volume is intended to be comprehensive yet succinct...the authors have accomplished their goals. In summary, the information presented in this text is thorough, well written, and clearly presented...This text will provide an excellent reference for any resident or practicing physician who cares for the patient who has sustained orthopaedic trauma.--The Journal of the American Medical AssociationThe text is concise and well written, with special sections devoted to outcomes data when available. The DVD surgical videos, the quantity and quality of which are truly superb, are the gem of this book. After reading the chapter and watching the accompanying video, the reader should be able to perform many of the demonstrated techniques with success....This textbook is a must for orthopaedic residents as well as any orthopaedic surgeon who is on call for trauma care. It will quickly become an essential resource due to its concise presentation and its quality DVD presentations. Having this book at hand is like having the benefit of an experienced orthopaedic trauma surgeon at your side.--Journal of Bone and Joint SurgeryThe first thing to say about this book is that it is not just a book; it is a true multimedia resource....The provision of four DVDs with over a hundred separate videos of surgical procedures raises the bar to new heights. The clear narration turns each video into a well illustrated lecture, and the set covers most of the conditions likely to be encountered by anyone 'on call.' Interspersing the moving picture with diagrams at key moments is a useful adjunct.... Thie biggest surprise of this book has to be how little it costs given the time and effort that has obviously been consumed in preparation. I would advise ever Specialist Registrar in the country to purchase a copy immediately, and every consultant to borrow it off of him!--D. Goodier, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (Br)[The editors] are to be commended on a job well done. This handsomely bound book is a comprehensive and concise reference that covers the modern surgical treatment of injuries in an in-depth manner, focusing not only on the classic treatment but on the technical details of the surgical intervention as well. Each chapter is laid out with ample photographs, diagrams, technical tricks, new technologies, and the latest in thinking on the respective subject. The text is a backdrop for the surgical videos supplied on four separate DVDs. These represent an outstanding compilation of surgeries performed by skilled surgeons. For the most part, these are of exceptional quality and permit the viewer more than ample opportunity to watch, listen, and learn from the experience of the presenter. This book is ideal as a teaching text for any resident wishing to pursue a career in orthopaedic trauma and would be an excellent source of review for orthopaedic trauma fellows. It will continue to be extremely useful for many years to come as a reference work for those of us already experienced in the discipline. In short, this is a text worth purchasing and using, over and over.--Journal of Orthopaedic TraumaAll chapters are concisely organized. ..systematic and logical approach..allows for easy reading and retention of key concepts. Surgical anatomy and approaches are illustrated with high-quality black and white drawings, and surgical techniques are accompanied by valuable step-by-step radiographic case studies. This outstanding and easy-to-use fracture text was intended and has succeeded in providing a single reference with everything that yo
