Orthopedics: Shoulder and Elbow Surgery

by Matthew S Austin, Gregg R Klein, Charles L Getz

World Clinics in Orthopedics is a wonderful resource for those interested in a concise and well-written update on topics near and dear to the surgeon treating patients with both straight-forward and complex shoulder and elbow problems. Shoulder and elbow specialists have a wide array of treatment options available to address their patient’s pain and dysfunction including successful nonoperative and operative treatments. The authors address hot topics such as reverse shoulder arthroplasty and treatment of arthritis in the young patient. Advanced management techniques for reconstructing bone loss in instability surgery, rotator cuff grafting, subscapularis deficiency in shoulder arthroplasty, nonunion, and malunion of the proximal humerus are described. Trauma to the shoulder and elbow joints, infection, rehabilitation, nonarthroplasty options for elbow degenerative joint disease, and superior labrum from anterior to posterior tears are addressed by expert thought-leaders.
