Reviews

"They (the authors) have all done a wonderful job addressing their unique questions. Residents and established orthopedic practitioners will find this book refreshing and easy to read. It is a lot like being able to "curbside" a visiting professor or expert at a national meeting on unique case challenges that you faced in your practice. I am sure it will be a popular read as part of our institution's orthopedic library." -- Mark R. Hutchinson, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Doody Enterprise, Inc. "Personal experience is a priceless asset in the hands of the talented surgeon. This book harnesses that knowledge and uses it as a learning tool for the practicing orthopedic surgeon. There are 49 such questions each put together in the form of a chapter written in an informal style, with only a minimal and essential list of references and a great deal of personal know-how. Dr. Della Valle and his collaborators have done an excellent job in making available a practical tool of widespread relevance. It certainly belongs in every total knee replacement surgeon's library." -- Dr. Jorge Galante They (the authors) have all done a wonderful job addressing their unique questions.
