About this book


Although a number of comprehensive texts pertaining to perioperative medicine are available, this remains the only one that focuses specifically on the patient undergoing orthopedic surgery, now in a revised and expanded second edition. Beginning with chapters covering preoperative evaluations and general principles and practices of perioperative medicine, the book then considers anesthesiologic management in orthopedic surgery and the role of postoperative pain management. This is followed by a section on medical management in specific clinical settings, discussing patients with connective tissue disease, cardiac disease, chronic pulmonary and renal diseases, diabetes and neurological diseases, among others. A fourth section covers specific perioperative problems in orthopedic surgery, such as care of the elderly patient, venous thromboembolism, infection, nutrition, compartment syndrome and bone health. Finally, the role of allied services, quality improvement and ethics are highlighted. Selected case studies are included to illustrate real-world perioperative issues and management strategies in orthopedic surgery, now moved to their respective chapters for ease of use and reference. The shaded key points and chapter objectives boxes at the beginning of each chapter, and the summary points at the end of each chapter, have been retained and updated within a full-color interior.

Written by experts at the top-ranked Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, Perioperative Care of the Orthopedic Patient, 2e will be a comprehensive, multidisciplinary manual providing preoperative considerations, postoperative complications, and guidelines for the anesthetic and medical management of patients undergoing orthopedic surgery. It will be an valuable resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists and allied professionals involved in orthopedic surgery.
