Product description

With the time available to surgeons-in-training ever dwindling, there is great emphasis placed on practical learning tools. Mirroring his earlier book on practical procedures in trauma surgery, Prof Giannoudis has produced a reference in more elective techniques. In most medical schools, most emphasis is placed on orthopaedic trauma surgery, with elective techniques often delayed until much later in a surgeon's training.

Back cover copy

"Practical Procedures in Orthopaedic Surgery" covers the most common procedures that a surgeon in training is expected to perform during his residency program for the Upper extremity and the spine. Each procedure has been written by an expert or under a supervision of an expert. Each chapter provides such useful information to the trainee as indications, clinical and radiological assessment, surgical approach, implant positioning, tips and tricks, post-operative complications to be aware of, mode of mobilisation and the time intervals of outpatient follow up. Intra-operative pictures have been incorporated to allow the surgeon to be aware of all the important issues and steps involved for each procedure.
