This landmark multimedia reference presents the most current information on surgical treatments of a wide range of injuries, from complex pelvic and spinal trauma to periarticular fractures and knee dislocations. For each injury, the authors guide the reader from the clinical evaluation, through the decision-making process, and to the surgical procedure.

  • Tips and Tricks summarize key points of each procedure for rapid review in preparation for surgery

  • More than 1,400 photographs, radiographs, and drawings illustrate techniques
  • New Techniques sections cover the latest innovations for surgical management
  • A separate table of contents for the four DVDs and shaded text boxes throughout the book enable convenient book-to-video reference
