Hamblen, PhD, DSc, FRCS(Edinburgh, England, Glasgow), Emeritus Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Glasgow, Visiting Professor, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK and Hamish Simpson, DM(Oxon), FRCS(Ed & England), Professor of Orthopaedics and Trauma, University of Edinburgh, UK
Published Reviews "This is an ideal and practical book for GPs to keep in the surgery for reference. Medical students, physiotherapists and nurses working on the orthopaedic wards would also find it useful. It is straightforward to locate a particular fracture by using either the contents or the index. The style is very readable and the text is up to date with mention of the latest treatment approaches, for example: balloon kyphoplasty for an osteoporotic fragility fracture of a vertebral body. There are numerous clear and good quality drawings and x-ray pictures.

Not surprisingly, patients think you should have the answer to their questions at your fingertips in which case this book will be invaluable." Dr Jeremy M Sager GP Leeds UK. July 2007


"This update responds to the current advances in fracture management by including newer surgical procedures without omitting important proven principles of injury care. I highly recommend this work to medical students and junior orthopedic, trauma, and emergency medicine trainees."
Edward Abraham, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine). Doody Enterprises
