"This important landmark work is published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons primarily for its 17,000-plus fellows and other orthopaedic surgeons worldwide. The surgical videos give the book a new and needed educational dimension, of which other publishers should take note...
I strongly recommend this groundbreaking multimedia resource to all orthopedic surgeons and trainees. It is a must-have reference that should be on the shelves of all medical libraries."
