While new techniques and instruments are constantly being developed, the fundamental concepts and principles of hand surgery remain the basic components of every surgeon's knowledge. This book provides the vital information needed to perform all types of hand surgery, including a guiding philosophy and systematic approach that reduce even the most difficult problems to manageable solutions. Written by world-renowned hand surgeon Robert W. Beasley, this book shares his 40 years of clinical experience and vast knowledge to help you make strong and effective surgical decisions.The text is augmented by nearly 1,400 exquisite, high-quality illustrations that explain important points and give meaning to theoretical concepts. The clinical photographs depict the entire process from the initial problem through the post-surgical results, and the anatomical drawings were created by award-winning artist and illustrator Leon Dorn especially for this book.
