About this book
The Pediatric Foot and Ankle is a comprehensive overview of the current evaluation, diagnosis, and management strategies for various foot and ankle disorders in the pediatric patient. It begins with a general history and physical and radiographic exam of the child’s lower extremity to establish normal parameters. Specific disorders are then described in detail, including neurological abnormalities, congenital deformities, and traumatic episodes. Expert authors in each area not only provide their insight and experience for proper diagnosis and treatment, but also proffer available evidence-based medicine on the topic. Since there is currently very little available to the surgeon regarding pediatric foot and ankle surgery, this book is a comprehensive authority on the topic, providing both surgical pearls and evidence-based medicine.
