Full-color, step-by-step instruction in the treatment of injuries and disorders of the upper extremity from the shoulder to the fingertip.

With nearly 100 outstanding international contributors and more than 1200 full-color photographs and illustrations, Operative Orthopedics of the Upper Extremity offers the latest, cutting edge treatment of the upper extremity from the shoulder to the fingertips.

The book covers injuries and disorders of the hand, carpus, distal radius, distal radioulnar joint, forearm, elbow, and shoulder. The chapters are organized both by level and anatomic structure starting with repair or reconstruction of the bone, joint and ligaments and progressing to the nerves, tendons and soft tissue. Each chapter includes the indications, contraindications, surgical techniques and postoperative management oftentimes by the originators of the technique, in addition to numerous pearls and possible pitfalls. When reconstruction is not possible, a section on salvage procedures covers the suitable options.

Operative Orthopedics of the Upper Extremity provides a one-stop resource for the treatment of injuries of the upper extremity. It provides essential material for both certification and recertification and will prove to be invaluable to both the entry level surgeon as well as the seasoned operator.

David Slutsky, MD (Torrance, CA), Chief of Reconstructive Hand Surgery, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center; Director, Slutsky Hand and Wrist Institute.
