As the US population ages, understanding disease processes and the nuances of their treatment in the elderly becomes essential. People want to remain active despite the bumps and bruises that accompany aging. Drs Koval and Zuckerman share their experience with fracture care in this easy-to-read text, which will help those who care for adults with fractures in the geriatric population to achieve good functional outcomes. The editors and 36 other contributors, primarily from New York, provide much insight in this useful, well-referenced work.
