As the population ages, symptoms of arthritis are seen with increasing frequency. This volume represents a major contribution to the hand surgery literature, taking a practical approach to the treatment of arthritic problems as they affect the hand and stressing the multimodal therapy that is most effective. The book begins with a discussion of dynamic anatomy, anatomy, and kinesiology. It discusses osteoarthritis and presents separate chapters on the wrist, fingers, and thumb before examining nonoperative treatment as well as surgical planning. The author also examines general considerations for soft tissues and rheumatoid disease.
