Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 "This is one of those rare books that, despite the fact that there are four shoulder books already on your shelf, is worth adding. I can't imagine a finer collection of contributing authors on the topic of shoulder surgery."

"Masterful! I have always loved this series, as I feel it lets me learn pearls from the best practitioners in the world. This entry on the shoulder is no different. Ed Craig has done a superb job of gathering the best in the world to keep us up to date. It is a great book and a worthy edition to the hospital, academic, and personal library. I may have to get an extra copy for the residents because they surely aren't going to get mine!"

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This addition to the Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery series is the third edition of a book dedicated to the shoulder. The previous edition was published in 2004, and with the dynamic changes in the field, ranging from more advanced arthroscopic techniques to reverse shoulder arthroplasty, this update is needed. This series has always had a special place in orthopedic surgeons' libraries, since the goal is to take readers inside the operating room of master teachers and surgeons who are key practitioners of most of these techniques.
Purpose: At least partially, the book serves as the fellowship in shoulder surgery you never took, the opportunity to update your skills and knowledge if your training was longer than five years ago, and the chance to walk into the operating room of some of the greatest shoulder surgeons in the country. A review of the contributing authors reveals a who's who of orthopedic shoulder surgery — Ed Craig, Russ Warren, Stephen Burkhart, Tony Romeo, James Andrews, Buddy Savoie, JP Warner, Evan Flatow, Steve Snyder, Jed Kuhn, Charles Rockwood, Joseph Ianotti, Christian Gerber, Robert Cofied, Louis Bigliani among others. I would love to do a mini-fellowship with each of these experts and, in a way, their chapters enable just that.
Audience: While clearly targeting orthopedic surgeons who currently perform or will perform shoulder surgery, this book should serve as a key reference for all orthopedic residents and fellows. This is one of those rare books that, despite the fact that there are four shoulder books already on your shelf, is worth adding. I can't imagine a finer collection of contributing authors on the topic of shoulder surgery.
Features: The book jumps right in discussing specific shoulder techniques, bypassing the fundamentals of basic anatomy and mechanics, which have been well covered elsewhere. Not to worry, each chapter discusses the specific target pathology, anatomy, and structures at risk. Mostly, this is a technical how-to book that quickly gets to key pearls expected of books authored by master mentors. This update includes an expansion of arthroscopic chapters and the addition of a chapter on reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Topics covered include arthroscopic techniques, instability, rotator cuff, trauma, arthroplasty, and arthroplasty alternatives. The online version that comes with the book has several bonus features and allows you to access the book anywhere you have your computer.
Assessment: Masterful! I have always loved this series, as I feel it lets me learn pearls from the best practitioners in the world. This entry on the shoulder is no different. Ed Craig has done a superb job of gathering the best in the world to keep us up to date. It is a great book and a worthy edition to the hospital, academic, and personal library. I may have to get an extra copy for the residents because they surely aren't going to get mine!
