The third edition of this classic textbook of pediatric orthopedic surgery is an extensive updating of the previous single-authored editions by the late Mihran O. Tachdjian, MD. Although not the first textbook dealing with pediatric orthopedic surgery, Dr Tachdjian's first edition, published in 1972, was for its time the first broadly based and topically nearly all inclusive published work of the emerging subspecialty. It was recognized by most in the field as the authoritative pediatric orthopedic text and endured as such until the author's second revised edition in 1990.
