The text expertly guides the reader from the initial evaluation to the surgical process for a wide range of injuries such as complex pelvic and spinal trauma and knee dislocations. The four DVDs included in the package contain 105 narrated videos, which provide an in-depth look into the operating room. Professionally produced, the material has outstanding sound quality and special effects. Multiple camera angles are used to lend each sequence, a more authentic look. The format of the discs and the book enable readers to easily cross-reference information.
The 'Exam Pearls' and 'Outcomes' sections in the text are extremely helpful to surgeons preparing for their board examinations. Residents will immediately recognize the benefits in using "Surgical Treatment of Orthopaedic Trauma" during their surgery rotations and while preparing for examinations. Both the book and the discs contain the most up-to-date information on surgical treatment used for traumas.
Advance copies of the book were available for the first time at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) meeting on February 14, 2007. On day two of the meeting, a book signing with Editors James P. Stannard, Andrew H. Schmidt, and Philip J. Kregor attracted a large and enthusiastic crowd at the Thieme booth. After the meeting Ross Lumpkin, Sales Director for Thieme Publishers New York, said, "With all the buzz about this new book, Surgical Treatment of Orthopaedic Trauma was the runaway bestseller. We are looking forward to the book’s continued success."
