Even over the course of a lifelong practice, it is difficult for a pediatric orthopedic surgeon to master most procedures performed within the field. Furthermore, it can be just as difficult for students of pediatric orthopedic surgery, whether surgeons, pediatricians, fellows, residents, or medical students, to understand the principles of the procedures. This textbook holds the experience and wisdom of renowned pediatric orthopedic surgeons. Successfully conveying understanding and technique of a surgical procedure can be difficult in print, even using photographs and artists' depictions. This textbook is innovative in its format with print, online access, and DVD. The companion website for this textbook is user-friendly.
