Main description:

Operative Techniques in Sports Medicine Surgery provides full-color, step-by-step explanations of all operative procedures in sports medicine. It contains the sports-related chapters from Sam W. Wiesel's Operative Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery. Written by experts from leading institutions around the world, this superbly illustrated volume focuses on mastery of operative techniques and also provides a thorough understanding of how to select the best procedure, how to avoid complications, and what outcomes to expect.

The user-friendly format is ideal for quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. Each procedure is broken down step by step, with full-color intraoperative photographs and drawings that demonstrate how to perform each technique. Extensive use of bulleted points and tables allows quick and easy reference.

Each clinical problem is discussed in the same format: definition, anatomy, physical exams, pathogenesis, natural history, physical findings, imaging and diagnostic studies, differential diagnosis, non-operative management, surgical management, pearls and pitfalls, postoperative care, outcomes, and complications. To ensure that the material fully meets residents' needs, the text was reviewed by a Residency Advisory Board.

"This book only confirms what I have known for a long time. Mark Miller is a wonderful educator and knows how to bring experts together to create a wonderful teaching and educational tool. It is current, easy to read, efficient, and fulfills the goal of assisting readers to successfully perform the most common techniques in sports medicine. While I fully intend to put a copy in the operating room for my residents to review before each case, they can't have mine -- I like it too much!"
