Chapman’s Comprehensive Orthopaedic Surgery

by Michael W Chapman, Michelle A James

This Chapman’s comprehensive book focuses on orthopaedic surgery. Orthopaedic surgery corrects problems that arise in the skeleton and its attachments, the ligaments and tendons. It may also deal with some problems of the nervous system, such as those that arise from injury of the spine. These problems can occur at birth, through injury, or as the result of aging. The four volumes of this book contain 12 sections, which are further divided into 285 chapters. The 12 subspecialty sections cover principles of musculoskeletal surgery and medicine, fractures, dislocations, malunions and non-unions, infectious, metabolic, neurological and other disorders, hand, wrist and forearm disorders and microsurgery, shoulder and elbow disorders, musculoskeletal oncology and amputations, sports injuries and arthroscopy, foot and ankle disorders, hip and knee reconstruction, spine disorder, paediatric disorders, physical medicine and rehabilitation. The revised name, Chapman’s Comprehensive Orthopaedic Surgery, reflects the inclusion of new information on the rapidly advancing basic science of the musculoskeletal system, including genetics and molecular biology, along with more comprehensive coverage of the physical examination and workup of musculoskeletal disorders including imaging. This book is an indispensable resource for practicing orthopaedic surgeons, residents, fellows and physiatrists. In addition to the total evaluation and workup of the patient, the step-by step description of over 1500 surgical procedures is bulleted for clarity with "tips and tricks". The text is richly illustrated with over 13,000 drawings, images, charts, tables and algorithms.
