Description

This expertly illustrated atlas has been the go-to reference in veterinary orthopedic surgery for nearly 50 years and remains the premier resource for small animal surgical procedures. As in prior editions, Piermattei's Atlas of Surgical Approaches to the Bones and Joints of the Dog and Cat, 5th Edition is teeming with highly detailed drawings that illustrate a wide range of surgical approaches. This edition also features six all new surgical approaches and three approaches which have been expanded to illustrate the modifications required when performing orthopedic surgery on the cat. In addition to updated images throughout, fifty-five brand new illustrations accompany the new surgical approaches. As many will attest, Piermattei's Atlas is an invaluable reference that no small animal surgeon should be without. "In summary, if you still don't have a previous edition of Piermattei's atlas of surgical approaches to the bones and joints of the dog and cat on your bookshelves, this is a must have. If you already have a previous edition, the difference between the 4th and 5th are not big, but there are a few additions that will still make it a worthwhile buy."

Review quote

-I have used every edition of this book over the years as it has been, and continues to be, the only book that provides such comprehensive surgical anatomic detail with excellent illustrations of surgical approaches. It has been 10 years since the last edition and since that time veterinary surgeons have been adopting some of the minimally invasive techniques that are being used in human orthopedics for their small animal patients. A revised edition describing those approaches is therefore timely. The additional surgical anatomic descriptions of orthopedic approaches in cats are also welcome.--Tisha Harper, DVM, MS(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine) Doody Review: 4stars -In summary, if you still don't have a previous edition of Piermattei's atlas of surgical approaches to the bones and joints of the dog and cat on your bookshelves, this is a must have.
