Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery: Pediatrics

JAMA. 2009;301(22):2391-2394. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.825

As the title suggests, Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery: Pediatrics is a 512-page, figure-filled, technique-specific textbook. It focuses primarily on surgical techniques in the lower extremity and spine that are unique to pediatric populations. In general, each chapter focuses on a single technique and its variations. Other than the first 5 chapters, which describe fracture treatment for the upper extremity, all subsequent chapters focus on techniques of the lower extremity (21 chapters) and spine (14 chapters). Several chapters describe newer techniques, such as chapter 17, “Ponseti Technique in the Treatment of Clubfoot,” chapter 23, “ACL Reconstruction in the Skeletally Immature Patient,” chapter 39, “Growing Spinal Instrumentation,” and chapter 41, “Temporary Distraction Rods in the Correction of Severe Scoliosis.”
