The book presents a problem-based, rational approach to the diagnosis of orthopaedic problems in children. It is divided into four sections based on the age at which specific problems may be encountered; the newborn and infant, the toddler and the pre-school child, the child in the school-going age and the adolescent. The authors outline a systematic approach to arrive at a tentative diagnosis by asking relevant questions related to the presenting symptom and then performing a thorough clinical examination. They then suggest the most appropriate investigations to confirm the diagnosis. Each chapter deals with the common conditions that may lead to the problem; the rarer causes of the problem are listed at the end. This feature would make the book a practical manual and a high quality reference source. An important feature of the book is the number and quality of illustrations and video clips in the electronic version.

The idea of this book is very simple. Nowadays, there are many good, very comprehensive, thick books available on Elbow Surgery. Although they are useful to obtain discrete information about specific topics, they are too large to be a user friendly for a general orthopedic surgeon facing common elbow problems. The increasing interest among young surgeons on elbow problems is remarkable. It has been our experience throughout the years, teaching our residents and visitors, that there is a real demand for a less extensive book, easy to read, and with practical information about the most commonly encountered problems of the elbow. This text would be enough to understand the common elbow practice for a general orthopedic surgeon and a guide to learn basic elbow surgery during training. There is nothing like this available today. It will be strongly oriented to practice, and all the authors, well known internationally for their expertise on elbow surgery, will be homogeneous in their message.

This is a book from practicing podiatrist Richard L Blake, D.P.M. of San Francisco, California. This book is a mixture of the art and science of medicine that Dr Blake practices everyday. Dr Blake describes the basic and common protocols for injury treatment of the foot, ankle, and leg. His emphasis is conservative, but covers 95% of all non-surgical injuries that Dr Blake will treat every year. Dr Blake tries to empower his patients, and those reading this book, to understand their options of treatment and the subtleties that are out there to improve their health. With so many treatments available, Dr Blake tries to create a healing environment with his patients from the first visit. Dr Blake will co-treat with his patients, sports medicine physicians, primary care physicians, physical therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, trainers, and coaches trying to create a well rounded approach where everyone has an equal say in the treatments. The book starts by exploring some basic rules, the general topics of rehabilitation, the treatment of pain, the bio-mechanical treatments of injury, the gait evaluation, and then specifics on tendinitis, nerve injuries, and fracture treatments. The book ends with very specific protocols on many injuries involving the front of your foot, mid part of the foot, heel of the foot, ankle, achilles area, and lower leg not involving the knee or above. Dr Richard Blake has practiced at the famed Center For Sports Medicine at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco for now 35 years. He loves to teach and tries to give patients the time and energy they deserve. This book will help them, and all those reading this book, to know how to help themselves heal with the right steps, with a little help from the medical community.
As a result of recent advances in surgical techniques and implant technology it is now possible to perform limb reconstruction in patients with a range of congenital, posttraumatic, and postinfection pathologies. This book is a clear, practical guide to the state-of-the-art surgical procedures employed in limb reconstruction for diverse conditions. It includes precise descriptions of the techniques themselves, accompanied by numerous helpful drawings and photographs. Pearls and pitfalls are highlighted, and thorough advice is also provided on indications, preoperative planning, and postoperative follow-up. The editors have carefully selected the contributors based on their expertise, and many of the authors were themselves responsible for developing the techniques that they describe.

This book offers essential guidance on selecting the most appropriate surgical management option for a variety of spinal conditions, including idiopathic problems, and degenerative disease. While the first part of the book discusses the neuroanatomy and biomechanics of the spine, pain mechanisms, and imaging techniques, the second guides the reader through the diagnostic process and treatment selection for disorders of the different regions of the spine, based on the principles of evidence-based medicine. I.e., it clearly explains why a particular technique should be selected for a specific patient on the basis of the available evidence, which is carefully reviewed. The book identifies potential complications and highlights technical pearls, describing newer surgical techniques and illustrating them with the help of images and accompanying videos. Though primarily intended for neurosurgeons, the book will also be of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, specialists in physical medicine, and pain specialists. ? Dr Erik van de Kelft graduated magna cum laude as a Doctor in Medicine, Surgery, and Obstetrics from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, in 1985. After 2 years of training in general surgery at the General Hospital Stuivenberg, he specialized in neurosurgery under the supervision of Drs. J.J. Martin and P. Selosse at the University Hospital, Antwerp (UZA). His training included periods in Montpellier, France and La Timone Hospital in Marseille, where he focused on pediatric neurosurgery. After successfully completing his training in 1993, Dr. van de Kelft became a permanent staff member in the Neurosurgery Department at the UZA and also a consultant at the Maria Middelares General Hospital in Sint-Niklaas. During this period, he earned a Doctorate in Biomedical Sciences, writing his doctoral thesis on the molecular genetics of malignant brain tumours. Since 1999 he has been a permanent member of the Neurosurgery Department of the Niklaas Hospital, Sint Niklaas, and the OLV (Our Lady) Hospital in Aalst; he is also a neurosurgery consultant at St. Jozef Hospital, Bornem. Dr. van de Kelft is especially known for his expertise in back surgery and in the surgical treatment of facial pain.

This book is a comprehensive illustrated surgical guide to operative exposures of the spinal nerves, also known as peripheral nerves. Each chapter is devoted to a particular nerve and describes the origin, anatomic relations, branches, surgical approaches, and clinical significance. The text is concise and easy to read and is complemented by informative color photos from cadaveric dissections and surgical procedures. A separate chapter on technical notes identifies surgical pearls relating to techniques such as nerve suturing and nerve transfers. Importantly, unlike other peripheral nerve atlases, this book is accompanied by videos of different approaches. The book will be especially valuable for residents and fellows in training and candidates for oral board and MOC examinations. It is also designed to provide a quick illustrated review for surgeons unfamiliar with a procedure. Most videos are less than 5 minutes long, and it should take less than 10 minutes to review each approach, including watching the video. Anatomy and Exposures of Spinal Nerves will effectively fill a gap caused by the absence of a peripheral nerve surgeon from many neurosurgery training programs. Amgad S. Hanna, MD,is Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery in the Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, and a neurosurgeon at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Meriter Hospital, William S.
