"Compared to classic older versions of books dedicated to the elbow, this one has several advantages making it a worthy addition to a surgeon's library. The online access improves accessibility and usability beyond the library where the book is shelved. It is also up to date, with the added bonus of an international flavor. It is a wonderful book for surgeons currently performing elbow surgery to gain some perspective and it is a quality first reference for residents, fellows-in-training, and surgeons who perform elbow surgery less often."- Mark Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine) 4 star Doody rating!
