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.
