The 5th edition of this now classic text draws on the strength of previous editions and now includes reference to the latest surgical techniques available in Europe, Australia and the USA. Emphasis remains on the continually expanding use of fixation techniques although conservative management remains an integral part of the text. The artwork programme - which so characterises the appeal and success of previous editions - has been fully updated although its clarity remains as strong as ever and the logical sequence of illustrations with their succinct captions affords a rewarding and effective way to learn.

Published Reviews

    "This concise work fulfills the important role of introducing medical students to orthopedic trauma. Additionally, it teaches orthopedic residents, in a step-by-step manner, the correct ways to assess and manage fractures and dislocations. General orthopedists caring for trauma patients can benefit greatly from this book. I strongly recommend it without reservation."
