This second edition of the classic work uses definitions, topical quotations by famous people and amusing cartoons in its exhaustive coverage of pediatric orthopedics. It communicates the latest findings in pediatric orthopedics in a didactic, comprehensive and detailed manner, answering everyday questions in the field of orthopedics and pediatrics and highlighting all aspects of diagnosis. It also gives precise instructions for therapy, and answers questions such as: should we simply let nature take care of the way children grow and develop? Or do we need splints, corsets, or even operations, for straightening what is crooked? This is how to make children's orthopedics fun - in practice and theory.
