About this book


Written by experts at the top-ranked Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, Perioperative Care of the Orthopedic Patient is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary manual providing preoperative considerations, postoperative complications, and guidelines for the anesthetic and medical management of patients undergoing orthopedic surgery.

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 psychiatric and neurological diseases. 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, and selected case studies are included to illustrate real-world perioperative issues and management strategies in orthopedic surgery.

A comprehensive yet concise reference, Perioperative Care of the Orthopedic Patient will be an invaluable resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists and any professional involved in orthopedic surgery.
