Review quote

"Overall, the seventh edition of Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults /Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children is an outstanding body of work presenting the most comprehensive and current treatment of musculoskeletal trauma possible. I turned to it repeatedly during my review and found the information illuminating and useful on each occasion. In addition to being valuable for specific clinical questions, many of the chapters are so well written they make for very enjoyable general reading as well. Anyone involved in the care of these injuries, from medical students and residents to seasoned practitioners, could benefit from the thorough discussion of the available evidence and solid expert opinion, using these items as an excellent starting point for supplementary reading in the literature. Furthermore, given the approach of staying up to date, enlisting expert authors and editors, and continuing to present an international perspective, this resource is poised to continue to be a benchmark reference in the care of adults and children with orthopedic or trauma injuries" John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Contributing Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, March 2011
