Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive three-volume book on the care of children with orthopedic injuries and disorders uniquely presents two volumes in print and one online.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a current and complete book on pediatric orthopedics.
Audience: The primary audience is orthopedic surgeons who care for children, as well as orthopedic residents and pediatric orthopedic fellows. Pediatricians and other primary care physicians, medical students, and physical and occupational therapists can use this as a reference.
Features: Volumes 1 and 2 are in print, while volume 3 is online. The first volume covers the expected basic information, such as growth and development, history and physical examination, anesthesia strategies, the management of children with developmental disabilities, and diagnostic imaging techniques. Narrated video on the physical examination of patients with different findings enhances the text. The second part of volume 1 gets to the meat of pediatric disorders. Conditions are organized based on anatomical sites. Scoliosis and congenital disorders of the upper extremities are thoroughly covered. Important topics such as developmental dysplasia of the hip, Legs-Pelvis-Perthis disease, and the slipped capital femoral epiphysis, authored by the editor John A. Herring, MD, must be considered the highlights of this volume. In volume 2, the modern treatment of clubfoot is outlined with other foot disorders. The surgical treatment of flexible flat foot and the growing popularity of the lateral column lengthening operation is well covered. Other topics in this volume include arthritis, infections, tumors, and injuries. The section on pelvic fractures is well done. Neuromuscular disorders, skeletal dysplasia, metabolic and hematologic disorders are available in the online volume, as are all references. The abundant color plates, illustrations, and photographs are of superior quality. Online videos include 58 live surgical procedures, narrated by the surgeon.
Assessment: This is a cutting-edge work, combining print and online volumes. However, I am not sure if all of this is necessary at this time, although as the area continues to expand we are not going to have any other choice with these extensive works. I suspect there are many of us who are going to find it very inconvenient to put down the book and go to the Internet to find a reference. In spite of this distraction, this book continues to build on previous editions by using new technology to deliver very important educational information for all. I highly recommend this to all the present and future orthopedic surgeons. It must be available on the reference shelf of all medical science libraries.
