Now in its updated Sixth Edition, this classic text remains a must-have for physicians and residents treating infants, children, or adolescents with orthopaedic problems. The foremost orthopaedists examine normal musculoskeletal development and the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of the entire range of abnormalities, with emphasis on evidence-based decision making in treatment selection. Many of this edition's clinical chapters include pearls and pitfalls and a description of the author's approach. This edition also has more clinical photographs. Discussions of surgical procedures are cross-referenced to the Atlas of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Fourth Edition, where readers can find step-by-step, illustrated technical instructions.
