For each case, you'll review patient history, planning, approach, reduction, fixation, and rehabilitation, along with hundreds of full-color illustrations, intraoperative pictures, and x-rays. long with detailed surgical techniques, you'll also find a wealth of guidelines on indications, choice of surgical approach, preoperative planning, and postoperative management. This is a book no orthopedic surgeon should be without.
