Edited by rising stars in orthopaedic surgery, this book is written by internationally recognized experts in hand surgery. The book begins with a basic science section on pathophysiology of the hand, wrist and forearm. The rest of the two-volume book then follows a progressive organization from the most common problems to the least common problems of the hand. Implements a practical approach by containing a chapter on the principles of portal placement, and features over 700 full-color illustrations. Section topics covered include radiographic imaging of the hand, wrist and forearm, avascular necrosis of the carpus, forearm injuries, tumors, and much more.
