Since the first edition of Skeletal Trauma was published in the early 1990s, the subspecialty field of orthopedic traumatology has undergone a major evolution. With this evolution, care has improved worldwide, and each edition of this textbook has paralleled the basic science and clinical advances in the care of musculoskeletal trauma and fracture. With this fourth edition of Skeletal Trauma: Basic Science, Management, and Reconstruction, the editors have continued the strong depth of focus on traumatic orthopedic injuries of their previous editions. This text is an excellent primary source for residents, fellows, and attending physicians who are and will be charged with treating orthopedic trauma now and in the future and has earned a place as a “must have” textbook for orthopedic surgeons in training and in practice.
