Book Analyzes

This multi-authored book, mainly American but also European, Chinese and South African, is above all a practical book for all surgeons who want clear information and easy access to a surgical technique.

Each chapter is constructed in the same way: with the indications and the preoperative assessment, the purpose of the operation but also the other possible treatments. The technique is described step by step, richly illustrated and supplemented by tricks and traps as well as postoperative care. A short list of references will allow the surgeon to know more.

All parts of the foot and ankle are treated whether it is traumatic or degenerative bone pathology, ligament or nerve. The choice of techniques is broad and includes arthroscopic and prosthetic techniques.

This book will not allow to deepen a subject, but its practical side will be very useful to search for information or perfect its operative gesture.
