Published Reviews

    "The book is nearly comprehensive in describing all conditions of the shoulder including anatomy, biomechanics, development and embryology, clinical and radiographic evaluation, outcome assessment, as well as pretty much all disorders of the shoulder and their treatment. Disorders of the Shoulder: Diagnosis and Management, 2nd edition, by Iannotti and Williams (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007), is also an excellent two-volume comprehensive book, but it is not as current as this one."- DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW, 5 Stars
