The Elbow and Its Disorders fourth edition
Since the first edition of The Elbow and Its Disorders in 1983 author is extremely proud to hear such comments regarding the original and previous efforts such as “the definitive word in elbow surgery”.Thus, I am very pleased along with my co-authors to have completed the current volume of The Elbow and Its Disorders fourth edition. The overall organization, hope and effort to be a comprehensive reference has been maintained with an increased emphasis on surgical technique which is an ever growing and relevant need of the orthopedic community.
Authors are, therefore, specifically pleased to offer video clips in a number of chapters in this Elbow and Its Disorders fourth edition ebook that does complement and enhance the practical and useful learning experience.
The exciting advances in elbow arthroscopy are more extensively explored in the current volume of Elbow and Its Disorders fourth edition. Innovative opportunities with regard to prosthetic joint replacement are also discussed in the current volume, along with nonprosthetic options such as anconeus arthroplasty. In fact, we are pleased to observe a considerable enhancement in the majority of chapters.
The text may not be able to impart the human qualities of the editor, which certainly are large contributors to his success with very difficult patient problems. But the text unequivocally clearly states that orthopedic surgery is not a manual but an intellectual discipline and that excellent orthopedic care is an art based on science.
