Abstract

The same criticism applies to this book as applies to most of the foreign books on orthopedic surgery, especially the German. It seems that they all have the same old chestnuts in photographs, before and after operation. Moreover, they seem to forget, or never knew, that there is such a thing as American orthopedic surgery. By this is included orthopedic surgery as taught and practiced in the United States and Canada. They also seem to forget that there are also English, Italian and French schools of orthopedic surgery. Many unusual cases with excellent results are illustrated. The book illustrates well the author's method of performing an osteotomy by means of bone pins.
