Ed. by Emil H. Schemitsch and Michael D. McKee.
Operative techniques series
Schemitsch and McKee (both affiliated with the U. of Toronto) have shaped the contributions of fellow topnotch specialists who are also members of the Canadian Orthopaedic Trauma Society (COTS). The contents are organized into three sections: upper extremity (16 procedures), lower extremity (23 procedures), and spine, pelvis, and acetabulum (12 procedures). The procedures are clearly and beautifully presented with photos and drawings as well as bulleted itemization of important points related to indications, examination and imaging, treatment options, controversies, pearls and pitfalls, surgical anatomy, positioning, portals and exposures, equipment and instrumentation, steps of the procedure itself, postoperative care, and complications. Purchase of the text includes online access and a DVD.
