Children's Upper and Lower Limb Orthopaedic Disorders is 1 in a 4-book paperback series on pediatric orthopedics. The other 3 books, edited by the same team, cover general principles of pediatric orthopedic disease, neuromuscular disorders, and fractures. Understood in this context, the focus of this book on providing a “concise description of regional disease and conditions encountered in the practice of pediatric orthopaedic surgery” is appropriate. Organized by regions, starting with the upper extremity, the text is well written and easily comprehended. Classic as well as contemporary articles are referenced to provide more in-depth information on the described conditions and operative techniques. The index is well cross-referenced, allowing easy access to major topics.
