Review:

"The editor and his contributors are still able to effectively present most of orthopedics in a single volume at an affordable price. There is a definite need for this type of book. It represents an important contribution to our better understanding of the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal trauma and disorders. I highly recommend it to all residents and physicians involved in caring for patients with orthopedic problems. General orthopedics surgeons and subspecialists may use it as a quick reference." (Doody's 2003-10-10)
