Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"AAOS has once again provided orthopedic surgeons and residents with the go-to review in the field. Other books may provide different approaches and techniques for study, but none of them have the stature of AAOS. If a resident or surgeon chooses to use one of the other books, it will almost assuredly be in addition to and not instead of this key offering. It is clearly a must buy for all orthopedists and residents preparing for examinations and, therefore, a key reference to be offered in all orthopedic libraries. This is a wonderful resource that I will be depending on for my own re-certification preparation."

-- Mark Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine) - Doody's Review


The obvious target audience is orthopedic surgeons, but more specifically it is those who want to review and stay current in the specialty. It will be especially valuable for surgeons preparing for boards, re-certification, and in-training examinations.
