    Review quote

    The majority of this textbook is dedicated to detailing the techniques available for the repair of fractures which it does admirably. ...The illustrations, which range from simple line drawings to photographs and algorithms, are excellent. When you combine these visual aids with concise and accurate descriptions, the result is a very useful guide for the beginner orthopaedic surgeon whilst at the same time acting as a reference tool for the more experienced operator. The information given on complications, corrective osteotomies and arthrodesis is also very well presented and useful. Bold print sentences and highlighted comments in the page margins...may be useful for students doing last minute preparation for an examination. --Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology
