This single-volume resource contains user-friendly, step-by-step information you need to perform a full range of operative techniques confidently, from the hand to the elbow.

In one convenient place, you’ll find the entire hand, wrist and elbow section, as well as relevant chapters from the shoulder and elbow, paediatrics, sports medicine and oncology sections of operative techniques in orthopaedic surgery.

Superb full-colour illustrations and step-by-step explanations help you master surgical techniques, select the best procedure, avoid complications and anticipate outcomes.

The user-friendly format is ideal for a quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. Each procedure is broken down step by step, with full-colour intraoperative photographs and drawings that demonstrate how to perform each technique.

Each clinical problem is discussed in the same concise format: with a definition, anatomy, physical exams, pathogenesis, natural history, physical findings, imaging and diagnostic studies, differential diagnosis, non-operative management, surgical management, pearls and pitfalls, postoperative care, outcomes and complications.

The detailed descriptions of surgical anatomy help you master even the most challenging and highly technical procedures. This book is ideal for a quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure, whether a familiar standard or a new and evolving technique.
